Have you seen the signs by new apartments that say “If you lived here, you’d be home by now?” I thought of that when I saw this hole, which quite likely could be home to a bird of some sort.

If you lived here, you’d be next door to an outstanding restaurant.

If you lived here, you’d have a cozy little place just right for you.

If you lived here, you’d have a fantastic bird’s eye view. It ups the price, but you’ll appreciate the space and amenities. King-sized bed included.

As behooves us now living a desert climate, here’s a desert flower, the flower of the prickly pear cactus. We have two somewhat small prickly pears in the backyard, but they have a prodigious number of flowers waiting to bloom.

These flowers welcomed us to our new home. I mentioned their beauty to the owner who replied, amazed, that she had been at the house just a few days earlier and there were no flowers. Several are already beginning to wilt, but oh, are they glorious!!

I didn’t stop much any of the three days, but on the last day, in Arizona, I did take a few shots out of the window. These shots give point-and-shoot a whole new meaning and quite a few get deleted. But here are a few I thought you might enjoy. Yes, I keep my eyes firmly on the road throughout!

By the way, I signed the lease for our rental house Thursday and it’s a beauty. I’m so excited. More on that when I get back and have internet all the time. Yesterday’s post was done on my phone, which is an experience I’d rather not have often. Today’s comes from the library via my iPad, easier but not the ease of a laptop.

This one might have still been in New Mexico.

There are some strange critters in the desert! Spotted these while waiting at a train crossing.

Arizona yards don’t look anything like those in the Midwest.  In fact, don’t call it a lawn, because according to Merriam-Webster a lawn is:

ground (as around a house or in a garden or park) that is covered with grass and is kept mowed.

No grass and no mowing in most parts of Arizona, water being at a premium.  So a walk around my parents’ yard would be on gravel and you’d see rocks, cacti, and also some trees and flowers.

These look sort of soft and fuzzy, but appearances are definitely deceiving!
