We had a big snow storm over the weekend. The weather service named it Brutus. Luckily, we only got around 5 inches but other places got much more, some got a few feet. The bad news, our plants weren’t really ready yet. Leaves were still hanging around, and a lot of branches were weighed down. I’m pretty sure our rose bush might not recover in some spots. However, the snow on top of the fall colored leaves sure looked pretty.
What is the weather like where you are?
Last week I took advantage of a nice morning and went into one of my favorite little canyons for some leaf peeping. Nature was putting on an amazing show!
It really doesn’t get much better than that! 🙂
On my birthday we visited the Tracy Aviary. It was a very hot day, probably not the best time to visit due to the heat, but it sure was fun to see the birds! They even have a lot of flamingos, and one of the most adorable owls ever! They also have some very unique birds. I really should have taken my proper camera (next time).
My husband took our SLR and captured a lot of really amazing close ups. Of course, they are all on his computer and are very large (he always shoots in RAW format) and therefore not very blog friendly (yet, I’m working on it).
It feels good to cross off another 101 item! I was looking over the list and due to health concerns there are a lot of things that likely won’t be crossed off before the deadline, but I am still working on the ones that we can accomplish!
Have you ever been to an aviary?
