Day of Firsts

Yesterday was a day of firsts. I had never seen a date palm.date palm At least I don’t think I had. Anyway, I was walking Bryce when I saw these weird little “things” on the ground. Having decided that the little “things” were not dog droppings, I looked around and found the little “things” were only under the palm trees. Looking up into the trees I saw “clusters” of fruit. With Trish’s help, I learned that the trees were date palms and datesthat the little “things” were dates that had fallen to the ground. Cool!

Then we were sitting out with our adult beverage, watching the sunset and talking with one of our neighbors. What should come running up the path but something else I’d never seen, a road runner. The neighbor said it was only a juvenile, but it was a neat thing to see.road runner
