It has been really beautiful here in Tucson. I love this time of year, and I also love pretending it is not going to get too damn hot here in a matter of weeks. Flowers have been blooming like crazy, on my bougainvillea (which I love), on all the cacti, and the Mexican bird of paradise we have in our backyard, which is now my new banner photo. Even the aloe have flowers.
It has only rained once this month though, while Adam was gone. But since he's returned, he's got us using our outdoor shower! It has been in the 90s a few times and it heats up our water heater back there. Here is a glimpse of June's first response to it.
The second time we used the shower she walked right up to the spray and stood in the water all by herself. I was afraid the water would knock her over.
Adam took June swimming yesterday (I am still stuck in the mire of trying to graduate) and he says a woman commented, "She has no fear at all!" You know, she is often very careful. I'm happy she likes water. Hopefully she will be a good swimmer one day.
