McKelvey Ave. - Beirut

Holy smokes. The SWAT team was here for a drama in our neighborhood we've never experienced. I'm sending a Flickr invite to those of you I know have an interest in the images. Note: These will not be made available to news media. They are all MINE!

I started a new blog even though I'm not so hot at it. My intention is to help those that can't get to my backyard see the work being done there. If you would like to stop by Maybelline's Garden and leave a helpful gardening comment or just be a Looky Lou, I'll appreciate it.

Peacock Blue

There's even peacocks in the trees! You really need to be careful walking under these dudes. They can really bomb you. What wonderful alarms they are. They remind me of Benny Goodman warming up!

Parrot Butt

There are all types of animals in the park. Wild parrots are abundant. Can you see the little, green, fuzzy butt of a parrot high up in the California Sycamore?

Walk in the Park

My dog loves to hate gophers. He also loves to take a car ride to the park to dig for his greatest foe. Today, during his outing I was messing around with my camera. Here is a California Sycamore in winter. The burnt orange leaves have almost all fallen and those fuzzy balls are dangling like leftover Christmas ornaments.

Got a niiiiiiiiiice camera for Christmas and I'm still figuring it out. I hope to post pictures here to chart my improvement. There's no place to get but better.
