So, you've seen Balboa Park flower photos -- now for my backyard. The last of the bottle brush blooms. The bees love this plant!
The prickly pear has a few buds, but something is eating them, and by tomorrow morning they will probably be gone. I thought this cactus was indestructible ... but I guess soft, tender buds like this are tempting to some critters. But which ones? Not sure what's attacking them, they are about 5 feet tall, so it can't be the bunnies. Any guesses out there?

|Keepers are decorating.|
|Monroe likes his cake.|
Monroe was busy checking everything out, but one of the female gorillas went right for the "cake." The cake was all ice and veggies and maybe some other kind of treats frozen in there too. There were treats hidden all over their area for all the gorillas, and they seemed to have a great time.
Happy Birthday (tomorrow) Monroe!

Yesterday my neighbor & I went to the Safari Park for a morning walk. We checked out the Ephyllium Greenhouse (not too many blooms here), then walked up the hill to The Baja Gardens where there are lots of plants in bloom now. The mathilda poppy is a favorite flower and the bush here at the Park was huge and full of flowers. I was lucky enough to get the bee in action on this one, plus some other little critter on the flower.

On our way home from Las Vegas a few weeks ago, Terry & I stopped for lunch at a 50's diner (Peggy Sue's), it's about 10 miles north of Barstow on the I-15. Worth a stop if you are in the area, food was OK, but photo opportunities terrific.
Our waitress was happy to pose for us by Elvis.

My neighbor, Lilian, and I walked the beach yesterday. The beautiful blue skies and puffy clouds, though, soon turned to gray, and the wind picked up. It didn't slow us down, we put our jackets on and kept right on walking.
|Heart-shaped rock was a lucky find.|

So glad I did, because the light was good this afternoon in my macro studio (also known as the kitchen), and I enjoyed photographing these beauties!
