Great blue heron

While at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in Seattle the other day, we saw a great blue heron from pretty close by, looking for lunch. A tough job.

Puppy at street fair

This German Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix puppy was a show stopper at the U-District Street Fair in Seattle today. Winter is just nine weeks old and will be about 110 lbs. when fully grown. This photo does not really show how utterly fluffy he is, but it does show the joy he brought to crowds and crowds of people in the few minutes I watched.

Poinsettias, outdoors

One of the great pleasures of a foreign trip is seeing what grows well there. I was so pleased to see this outdoor display of poinsettia plants in San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico, last month.

Succulent rosettes

On my recent trip to Mexico, I saw some extremely pretty succulents in my sister’s garden. Don’t they look like roses?

Opuntia cactus

So much fun at the Botanical Garden (El Charco del Ingenio Jardin Botanico) in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Here is a close up of a nopal cactus. Spiky!

Nopal cactus (Opuntia or prickly pear) getting ready to fruit, I think.

Crocodile…really alligator

No words needed. But a Florida resident tells me it’s a gator, not a croc. Crocs don’t get this big.

Powerful crocodile, or maybe an alligator? in Florida
