Meanwhile I'm in town organizing photos from recent days. My sister Ann was delighted to have her Century Plant (Agave havardiana) prepare to bloom. And it hasn't even been a century since she planted it. Here's a photo she proudly took of it.
The pride was followed by the fall a day or so later, unfortunately. Here we are yesterday trying to prop it up a little. She's hoping it'll go ahead and finish blooming in it's prone state.
And yesterday I took this photo of a lovely male Two-tailed Swallowtail at CMO.
And even though I changed my plans for today, Mac kept with his. When I got up this morning and headed down to the oasis, past the guesthouse, he had already left on his trip home. All I saw was this rainbow he left for me. No rain though.
