Monday Morning Walk, March 28 – 365 – 087

It is another beautiful sunny morning in southeastern Arizona. It was about 55 degrees when I started my walk at 8:40 this morning, but there was no wind and the sun quickly warmed me up. So, what did I see this morning? The first thing I saw was the blimp rising in the sky.

Signs of Spring

There were many more signs of spring this week, although not very many flowers yet. Mostly I saw greening trees and palms.

These were about the only flowers I saw in my half hour walk, other than a lone iris here and there.

Green! This lawn is green all year round and one of the very few that are actually green.

Huachuca Mountains

Last Monday night’s storm added some snow to the top of the Huachuca Mountains, but I think it has mostly melted away.

Shining Suns

This morning I noticed how many houses have decorative suns on their outside walls. They come in all sorts and sizes.

Corner Tree

Last Monday I took a picture of the tree across the corner from our house. You can see that it has leafed out a good bit more during the past week.

  1. I love the sun pictures! They made me smile!

    No leaves yet on trees here in the Rockies, but our crocuses and daffodils are blooming. Would you believe we are supposed to get snow this week?

  2. You must know what the bush with the pretty flowers is, since it is so famous in Tombstone. Banksia rose?

    • No, I didn’t know what it was called! I know there is a tourist spot in Tombstone that centers around a very old rose bush or rose tree, but never stopped to find out more about it. Thanks for providing the name!

  3. My brother is in AZ… the weather is so different from here!
