April 7, 2009 PLANS

~~NM-GRL (IA-GRL)

After a morning of errands which will extend into early afternoon, I’m loading up the camera with new batteries and checking out all the new fruits that are appearing…the grapes are forming little clusters, the apricot has it’s first flower, and oh, those peaches! If I don’t bag them soon…..MORE later…or tomorrow….I still have to plant!!!

Yesterday, I was driving on Roadrunner Parkway and …you guessed it…I was SWOOPED by a roadrunner.  He lost some feathers as he took off as I came down the road…he just grazed the top of my car!

A couple of days ago a HUGE roadrunner was hanging out in the brush on the other side of my wall that back onto the arroyo. I mean, he was BIG…the biggest I’ve ever seen.  Must have been about 3 feet from the tip of his beak to the tip of his tail…
