It was a hot week slowing down my running to a jog and some days mostly a walk. So I didn’t burn as many calories but the sights captured on my iPhone more than made up for it. One day was spent at the local Jungle Gardens. It is a small park but they have a wonderful flock of flamingos that usually surround you begging for food. As it was their breeding season they were completely disinterested in us. I hope you enjoy these things I share with you when I open my eyes to my surroundings. Nature is just beautiful. Enjoy your Saturday!
I captured the sunset through a sculpture on the bay
It was breeding season for the Flamingos so they were not interested in any feeding attempts. Two Ibis looking on.
Magnificent Banyan Trees in the neighborhood
This is Bridal Bouquet, part of the plumeria family. Fortunately it does not shed it leaves like a plumeria so it stays lush all year round. I had this growing at the front of my house but someone flattened it with a bike, i guess. I rescued what I could salvage and have potted it, nursing it back to health.
