The brush and grasses are so dry now they are brittle. This is going to be a busy fire season. We had a nice showing of the desert marigold in our yard. With the weather changes in this area there is an abundance of grass crowding out some of the wildflowers. The Joshua trees are doing great. They are filled with cactus wren nests. The cactus wren is our state bird. The doves prefer our out buildings. A Gila Monster was spotted nearby. Some fool picked it up and was showing it around. They are extremely poisonous. And I believe they are protected. When they bite they don`t let go, chewing to release the poison in their aggressor. The Gila Monster is not aggressive. Not the ones I`ve encountered anyway.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you have splendid weekend!
