With the cooler morning temps, I'm back to my outdoor exercise routine of long walks and/or bike rides. It's way more fun being outdoors than stuck in a gym. Not to mention I'm not particularly wild right now about being inside with all those possible swine flu bugs!
After the morning walk, I noticed one more surprise when I watered the plants in the courtyard. Another one of these little birdies has popped out on display! It must like the slightly cooler temps. These Birds of Paradise have been fairly elusive, but maybe the plants are maturing now and will bloom more.
We're now entering the time of year when everyone walks around saying -- And this is why we live in Phoenix! Woo hoooo. I've made it through another summer in the blast oven.
