The California rains finally stopped yesterday.  Talker and I went outside to enjoy the very missed morning sun together.

It's not a flower or an insect but I just thought I'd throw it in under "Other"

Savannah on Sunday Afternoon

This is my new favorite picture of Savannah.  She recently had an injury involving her legs and wasn't able to walk very well without losing her footing.  She's been on the mend for about 3 weeks now.  I was outside taking pictures of the finches feeding and she wobbled herself outside with me and caught some sun rays while I caught her beautiful face.

Descanso Gardens January 9, 2010

My husband and I went to Descanso Gardens this past weekend.  He was to be my scribe and his assignment was to jot down the plants/flowers that I photographed.  His system of jotting down the names didn't quite work out as we later couldn't match the names to the photos.  However, we had a good time and even though the gardens were mostly in their winter state I did manage to capture a few flowers and interesting plants throughout the gardens.

January 1, 2010 - Living Desert in Palm Desert

New Year's Day I traveled to Palm Desert to the Living Desert to meet up with my friend to take photos. It was a little difficult getting up the day after attending a New Year's Eve party but I managed. My husband planned to stay home and nurse his hangover and I thought I could either sit around and do nothing all day or actually get out and take some photos. I'm glad I did. After spending about spending 5-1/2 hours at the Living Desert, I hit the road and heading home. Now that was hard. I was tired and hungry and the drive seemed extra long now.

How long can such beauty last when it is just  barely hanging from a vine?
