Walnut Down

Our large Black Walnut Tree that died several years ago was cut down today. Now it can be processed and made into lumber. I’ve been trying to get it taken down for several years. I couldn’t do it by myself, and besides, I don’t own a 36 inch chainsaw. The video below show the process of cutting down the tree.

There was a very interesting cloud formation to the north tonight.

The Goatlet Next Door

The thunderheads building up in the west were taking after Resa’s Tree.

Our neighbor’s goat had a goatlet (kid). The photos in the gallery below were taken this afternoon. The goatlet was 26 hours old when I took the photos. Click on a photo in the gallery for a slideshow.

The above video is of thunderheads dancing. Turn up the volume and enjoy the show.

The painter was in a lavender/gray, blue and white mood for the sunset tonight. Looking west.

Sunsets & Cotton

The red was muted on the Sandias tonight.

Tiny Toads

When we had Jake out at the beach on Father’s Day, there were a lot of tiny toads playing on the beach as well.

Threatening clouds blew in to cover the moon and turn the sunset gray.

Cool & Picante On A Hot Afternoon

The temperature was only 100º F (37.8º C) when I prepared this meal of a salad (made by Laurie), extra sharp cheddar cheese, hot salsa, corn chips and blueberries.

Tonight was the first night it was clear enough to see the moon from our property.
