Arizona was sporting some New Mexico-level clouds yesterday. Drama!

The Big 8-0

Happy birthday to the nuttiest, sweetest, most loving, goofiest, giggliest mother in the land: my mom, Vicki Sue, turned 80 years old today.

"So today is your birthday, that's what I've been told...what a wonderful birthday, you're one more year old. On a cake there'll be candles all lighted for you...and the whole world is singing 'Happy Birthday to You.'"

We love you, Vivi!

Tiny on a Line

Here is the same (I think) little hummer that was in my tree now perching on a utility line. How does he/she do it with those minuscule feet?!

Summer Surprise

 I put this amaryllis outside after it bloomed earlier this year so that it could gather energy into its leaves; the leaves then die back and you put the bulb into darkness so that it will bloom again in the winter.

This one had a mind of its own--just gorgeous!

I see you, tiny little friend...

Feels Like Forever and Yesterday

It has been three months without Miss simultaneously feels like just yesterday and forever. I wish I could kiss that pink velvety spot above her nose once more.

Head, Red

This is a beautiful little house finch, one of the many birds who come into the yard every morning for a bath and an insect feast. Love!

Pretty Kitty

 I am watching my neighbor's lovely cat, Ria, for a few days. She is sweet as can be, purrs and meows when I come in.
She is an outdoor cat during the day, however, and she is a bit pissed that for the next couple of days she is an indoor cat during the day.

Berry Good

I don't get very many of them, but they are just delectable.

Happy Hibiscus (Hibisci?)

These are in the garden at the Getty Center--they are the biggest hibiscus flowers I have ever seen--just gorgeous.

Throwback Friday

A throwback to one year gorgeous girl.

(I couldn't get new photos from L.A. today to load...more Los Angeles love on Monday!)

I Love L.A: 4

That light.

 Those museums.
That campus.
That architecture.
