When I came home for lunch, today, I noticed some changes in the yard. I thought it would be a good opportunity for some photo-practice, so I grabbed the camera. It turns out that I need guidance, as well as practice, because most of my shots were 'delete worthy'. I did get this shot of the North end of a Southbound bee, though...
He was hard at work pollinating the blooms on the plum tree.
The best thing about living in the desert is spring in February!
When I returned to work, I had an email from Dearest Sister , warning me that our girls from the East might not be able to join the party as planned! Apparently a snow storm is bearing down on them and the airport has already put them on notice that their flight might not happen!
On Sunday, I caught a snippet of a radio program on NPR while I was running errands. It was an interview with some sort of expert onword usage. The discussion was on the evolution of the terms for the wild weather that seems to be getting more common.
He discussed the transition from 'global warming' (not accurate, as some places are having record cold) to 'climate change' (too benign - 'change can be good for us') and now, apparently to 'climate crisis' (more of an alarm!).
My world is having a climate crisis.
As in 'what good is beautiful weather, if the people can't get here to enjoy it!'
Dsis, and I plan to travel East with the girls and Man Friend on Monday to enjoy the rest of the week in their world. I guess I should take a coat...
