Charco Del Ingenio

Kathy, ReAnn and I visited Charco Del Ingenio (botanical gardens) yesterday. I thought we might see a lot of flowers, but the blooming season has past. What we did find were all kinds of unusual critters. I have no idea what kind of bugs these are, but I’ve never seem them in the states. The gardens are located above town and it was a nice way to spend the morning. Enjoy!

Bronce a la cera perdida

There is a new (to me) art installation adjacent to the El Jardin. It’s a large bronze statue of an angel in a boat. It is very cool! Here are a few photos of the angel, the parroquia (church) and a wonderful trumpet man. Enjoy!

The Living Desert II

It’s been a warm weekend here in the desert, but I decided to head back out to the Living Desert to see how my favorite animals are doing. I managed to get a few nice photos. Enjoy!

The Living Desert

I decided to run out to the Living Desert in Palm Desert this morning to see what’s new. They’re doing a lot of construction that (I believe) will be ready in the fall. Anyway, it was toasty warm this morning so the animals weren’t too active, but I managed to get a couple of nice photos. Enjoy!

Comic-Con at the Palm Springs Library

Yesterday was Comic-con at the Palm Springs Library. Lots of kids and parents showed up for the event and some were in costume. The library provided a wonderful assortment of crafts and games for the kids of all ages. Darth Vader even showed! Enjoy.

Gringo | San Miguel de Allende

On this last trip to San Miguel de Allende, I met up with our friend Kathy in Leon. She was transporting a new Yorkie named Gringo to her friends, Jackie and Patrick, in SMA. Kathy and I delivered Gringo to his new mom, dad and brother Paco. He was such a sweet little boy I kept threatening to steal him and bring him home. Here are a few photos I got of Gringo, Kathy’s dog named Sedona, and Gringo’s new brother Paco. Enjoy!
