Let It Grow

Three cool living things that appeared in our backyard recently.


1. This guy is probably a waved sphinx. And I think he likes to munch on our jalapeño plant.


2. This hibiscus has no business growing in full sun and radiant heat from a block wall. How it thrives I'll never know.


3. This parakeet is among about ten others that regularly appear to eat seed and socialize. They always arrive in pairs. I couldn't get a good shot with his friend. White, yellow, blue, and green are the other varieties. With these pictures, I feel like we live in Hawaii, not Arizona.
