Monday walk…Yes, indeed, I’m walkin’.

On this morning, the sun seemed to take a bite out of the top of the house across the street behind us. Let’s get moving before it gets up too high.

The first thing we see in the yard of the family next door.

Along the side of the canal are these bright beauties that I think might be lavender cotton.

Arizona waterfalls. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m looking forward to getting into the mountains once things ease up.

Our landlady planted this before we moved in, an oleander, I think. Oleanders are beautiful but toxic, so just look from a distance.

I’m pretty sure it’s time for breakfast. I can offer homemade granola with yogurt, dried blueberries, organic honey, and more. I’d also be happy to make a pot of tea if you’re interested. Happy Monday!

    Happy Monday, indeed!

  3. Leya says:

    I’ll be right over, Janet!

  4. You have lovely views!

  5. Ally Bean says:

    I know of, but have never seen [to my knowledge], an oleander. It’s pretty and delicate.

    I was running a bit late this morning, and only had time for a slice of toast. Made up for it since as it was a wet afternoon and I finally got round to watching some clips from Phantom of the Opera I’ve been promising myself for a long time. With homemade apple crumble ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Many thanks for the share. Have a good week!

    • You enjoy your week, too, Jo. I’ve had a profitable morning (walked then had breakfast, made simple syrup for lemonade, made iced tea for my husband, got the ingredients for bread in the bread machine, heated up some crystallized honey, did a bit of mopping) and it’s only a bit after 10 am. Just have to keep that up, right? But it’s time for a tea break and then back at it.

        That’s what early starts do. I’m always up early and don’t breakfast for an hour or two but would never go out walking on an empty stomach…. Well, maybe once or twice ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I always walk first just because I feel the need to get out early. That makes me always ready for breakfast when I get back. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Those yellow(orange?) puffs are really pretty. I like the shot of the canal gates.

  8. lolaWi says:

    lovely walk, Janet and oh, your breakfast sounds irresistible! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Forestwood says:

    I am impressed that you had time to document your walk, Janet! Love the yellow ball plant. Fantastic.

  10. Yes, it does look like the sun has taken a bite out of that house wall. ๐Ÿ˜… Oleanders were declared a noxious weed in South Africa. Pity, because theyโ€™re so pretty.

  11. Looks and sounds good to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Lignum Draco says:

    That looks like a lovely stroll, Janet. You must be enjoying exploring the new neighbourhood.

  13. Rupali says:

    Wonderful walk with nice views.

  14. Resa says:

    Your new world is very lovely!

  15. […] Monday walk…Yes, indeed, I’m walkin’ […]
