Yesterday I was brave, and explored the San Diego Zoo all by myself and took 230 photos of plants, flowers, birds, and that's it. They have reconfigured the Zoo, and after going down a very steep path from the Bird Aviary and holding on to the rail the entire way my arthritic legs couldn't walk any further. I asked an attendant the easiest people mover way to get back up, and she called me a shuttle. Bless her and the man driving the shuttle. I was driven to the exit, with all my new photos safely stored in my camera, walked to my car, and drove home. I then took two Excedrin and went to sleep. I am such a wild and crazy woman with so much energy! Ha!!! When I wasn't looking as the years passed, and I worked away I got old. How does this happen to such nice hard working people? I did download the photos, and also took more garden pictures, Iris and Roses. Sometimes, especially in spring I do a lot of photography. In southern California, there is less of a bounty of flowers in summer because it is so hot (desert climate), and water is so expensive. Thus after the rains we have California native poppy's and all the other plants and trees blooming. Plus all the spring bulbs are coming up. These are some of my Neighbor's beautiful yellow Iris.
