After the rain~Nature Notes~072811
Hubby and I were over in Scottsdale, Arizona last weekend. It rained Sunday night. It rained and rained, actually, and there was thunder and lightning. So, Monday morning, I headed out for a walk. It was very humid and my hair frizzed and I was dripping wet! But, the monsoon clouds had lingered and everything smelled delightfully like the desert, especially the creosote bushes. The pathway next to the resort was soggy and I saw some footprints there. Quail and rabbits were out, enjoying their morning meal (and the water, I'm sure!) Scottsdale and Phoenix got a real drenching! We are heading back to Arizona in mid-August, but we're driving up to the Mogollon Rim for a few nights. Nature Notes for July 28, 2011.
