Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, your popular host, Mani the purebred border collie, here today just to show some pictures, since there’s not much else going on. You may remember me from such similarly-themed posts as “Willows And Owls And Mystery Eggs”, among so many, many others.
Well, there was a little gardening, of sorts. The guy I live with and his friend both spent several days packing seeds for the North American Rock Garden Society’s annual seed distribution, so they met at Denver Botanic Gardens, and afterward, the guy I live with then delivered the seed packets to a house not very far from there.
He only took a few pictures.
There’s a Yucca faxoniana at our house, too; the guy I live with said that eventually it will be as big as the one on the left in the picture above.
In the picture below, you can see Cupressus arizonica ‘Observatory’ in the left background. The guy I live with says it’s a “honking big Arizona cypress”. It was grown from seeds collected by the observatory at the University of Colorado in Boulder.And talk about unusual, this is a Cupressus montana from San Pedro Martir in Baja California.
Here, there isn’t much going on at all. I know this post might seem like the “same old, same old”, but really, very little is happening.
A few days ago, on my evening walk, I noticed something by the big willow out in the field. The guy I live with couldn’t see it, so we walked a little bit farther, and then he said he saw ears.
I really super extra wanted to go investigate, but the guy I live with said No (more than fifty times).
There was a gray animal, maybe the same size as me, curled up, trying to sleep. The guy I live with couldn’t figure out what it was. The next morning it was gone, but then it was there in the evening. Then the next day we both saw it in the field; it was a coyote, just a gray one.
The gray coyote was curled up beneath this willow. There’s an owl almost in the center of the picture. This was taken yesterday evening.This evening, the owl, or its companion, was staring down at me, while the guy I live with took its picture.So that’s really it. It’s been windy most of the day; the guy I live with said it was sort of a chinook, since it’s a warm wind and a lot of the snow has evaporated.
I’ll leave you with a picture of me, in the slushy snow empinkened by the sunset.
Until next time, then.
