3 days of spring...

...and over 300 images. Yikes! I'm busy trying to rebuild my inventory so that I can be a slacker every now and then! Suffice it to say I've challenged my walking muscles now that we've had a taste of spring. Too tired to think words, but here are a few of the more interesting sights I've seen along the way.

A bent oak tree, courtesy of the electric utility, which cut off the upright bole to protect its lines.

My favorite large ant nest aboil with residents suddenly warmed out of winter lethargy.

A pothole puddle left from our last storm plus the dead traffic cone that obviously wasn't sufficient warning.

An alleyway dwelling....

Sycamore limbs outlined by a bright sun.

A steel wool rosette in the neighborhood grocery store.

And the wonderfull old, old windmill at the Sharlot Hall museum. Enjoy. I did!

We had a few warm days this past week, but since yesterday evening we have had one hell of a wind storm. Nice photos.

The latest storm from the northwest has decided to bypass Arizona -- probably bringing to a close our wet winter! Too bad.

On www.noaa.org and weather.gov, both show that at least until Wednesday, you'll get partly cloudy and then some sunshine.

Mon.-Wed. should be good, sunny walking days to help you rebuild that photo database.

anon av -- I'd sure like to get a couple more of those Pacific NW storms before the spring dry sets in, even though my lungs like the high pressure and I like the sunshine.

Wonderful offbeat details and observations, my favourite kind of thing! But I also liked the last lot of distance shots, which contribute to my sense of what Prescott's like.

lucy -- it's curious -- I hadn't thought too much about my assorted telephoto shots of the city until one day I was going through iPhoto & suddenly the idea seemed like a natural. BTW, it gave me new perspectives on the city,as well.
