Cyclamen, A Toad and Red Tailed Hawk

23 Sep

These tiny cyclamen are flowering even as the weather turns quite cold.dscn6949

We found a toad near the compost. I haven’t identified it but the colours are lovely.


As we were leaving the Grand Canyon, up near Jacob Lake I saw a beautiful, large, black and white bird with a fanned out red tail. As we pulled in to the area to change drivers, we saw a bunch of bird spotters so I asked them if they could identify the bird I had seen and they did – a Red Tailed Hawk. The photo is not mine, sadly.


If you are reading this tonight, R, just wanted to say that I missed your lovely smiles at Pilates this morning. Hope all is well.
