Another fun week in the field and a couple of instances from the deck! During one of the last snowstorms not long ago in memory but ages ago for the much-needed moisture. We can watch the storms build up over Taos Mountain from the deck. The mourning doves have been enjoying life and seem to be inseparable, hanging out side by side in the old cottonwood tree, also visible from the deck. We made a trip to join our friends Chris and Carla at their ranch in Black Lake, New Mexico a few days ago. The meadows were carpeted with millions of wild iris. I’ve seen similar fields of iris in the Valle Vidal but nothing like this. And this was only a square mile of it. On June 11, the waxing crescent moon swung by the planet Venus. I have a favorite parking spot to watch this particular sight when it occurs. Summer Solstice is coming up on Sunday, June 20th. Where to go for a Solstice moment photo? We shall see!
Enjoy the summer where you are and as always, thanks for looking. G

Geraint, your images are the best possible advertising for New Mexico tourism.
Thank you, Larry. I really appreciate the compliments, and… the photos you share via email. G
Each of these photos is a reminder that we live in heaven. When I saw the building storm clouds, a voice said, “God lives here.”
Thank you, Susan. I’m grateful I get to be out in heaven every day. G

I do remember good years when the wildflowers are abundant in the UK. And the heather… well that’s one thing I do miss here. Thanks, Alison. G
