I volunteered my time to take some photos of Mount San Jacinto College, Menifee Campus, Multicultural Festival. It was great fun and I know it will just get bigger and better. There are so many people who worked so hard to put it on. This is just one of many dancers that came to show us some ethnic dances from around the world.
We are missing the Birthday boy. He must be off some where looking for cake or presents. His two cousins and sister give a group hug. They really do like each other.
These two really know how to relax. Chi Chi the Chihuahua thinks he is really deprived if he doesn't get to come in and watch tv for at least a little while. Now lately the big girl Eva dog has to get in on the action.
What a lovely little thing. Why do we consider it a weed???
We are still having very cool drizzly weather for this time of year. Enjoy it while it lasts, summer will be here before we know it.
Well here is more of the ugly, but made just a little bit pretty. I have a broken water main in my grove. My fabulous Son-in-law came over to help me find the leak. After digging a trench about 30 ft long and 3 feet wide and who knows how deep, he finally found it with the help of our local leak detection company. He had to dig another hole about 20 feet from the first one but now he found the leak and repaired the broken pipe. Yahoo! Now to wait for the water bill. Ewwwww!
Even though I can't seem to afford to water these trees they just keep producing and prodducing. I am sure there is someone some where who would love to eat these Moro Blood oranges but I can't seem to find a market for them here in Temecula. Not even the food pantries seem to want them. Oh well! My family and I just can't pick and eat nearly 100 thousand pounds of oranges.
Art called be out to see this great big "bug". I don't know his technical name but he was a magnificent insect in the light from the porch. I have always called him a mosquito hawk, but I am unsure if this is even a correct common name. He did look beautiful to me though.
This little wren is out telling the world that he is here. I don't know if he has found the love of his life, is still looking for the love of his life, or is pronouncing the arrival of little bundles of joy, but what ever the message, he sure seems happy.
We saw the babies today. Their little heads are very wobbly and they are popping up and down, stretching their wings. Just little fluffballs. Art actually got a better photo than I did. We WILL get better photos as they get bigger. As Momma leaves them alone more they will be doing amazing things as adolescent. "Hey, watch what I can do!" I can wait!
Spring is definitely here. The sights and sounds of Spring are everywhere. Birds chirping and babies hatching, fruit appearing and flowers blooming. I have roses, snapdragons, irises, oranges, apricots, apples, grapefruit, figs, lemons (that never stop) pomegranates. What an abundance. Have to find a way of sharing. That is the challenge. Sharing what we have.
Fun watching my two nesting Red Shoulder Hawks with their babies. Just Lucky to be down at the time the daddy flew in with a snack for everyone. I have no idea what's for dinner but I am sure it is yummy. They caught me so off guard I just started snapping away, no refocusing, probably camera shake, but caught them.
