middle age.

I have finally come to think that the simplicity of the common sunflower has imbued it with a serious level of elegance. A petal missing, a group of them drooping, a new flower with the audacity of youth in its presentation. Impressive stuff.

Too Bleedin’ Hot

Even though there was a little monsoon rain on the way to the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum and the temperature was down a few degrees, it was still in the mid-90s at least.  Clearly too hot to do anything but lay around inside and watch reruns with a cold drink in your hand, er, paw.  At least that’s what I like to imagine this Puma concolor is up to.
