Sunrise, Tortoise and Water Lilies


The other morning there was a beautiful sunrise that reflected off my kitchen cabinet. This morning a desert tortoise wandered onto the property and graced us with its presence for about an hour. Lastly, the ponds were stunning with almost all the varieties blooming at once. I also included a picture of a yellow walking iris that has interesting markings. Hope you enjoy this Sunday morning.




  1. Your water lilies are just gorgeous Miriam. You have such a panorama to the desert and are so fortunate to be able to see so much wildlife…the javelinas got into my garden and rooted up my parsley…but I am glad they are still here…I would be mesmerized by watching out your living room window!
