Better late than never

There’s a Palo Verde tree in the front yard. It has green bark and is covered with yellow flowers in May. This single flower just appeared


He named it censored after one of His friends who is perpetually late (well, July is a couple of months late when you’re due in May). If one is serving dinner at six, you tell censored that dinner is at five and hope censored shows up by six. I took a walk out to see censored (the flower). He doesn’t want to embarrass His friend but now all of His friends think they’re the one! He made a big mistake.

Kenzie update – No change from yesterday which is sort of good news because he’s on an upbeat.

  1. I think we must all have friends like that, I know my humans do.
    I am so happy to hear Kenzie is still powering on.
    Go Kenzie, go!

  2. One flower ~ just one!!! Well if you only had one friend they would know who censored was! Glad Kenzie is having another up day.

    Pssss ~ with the drought we are having we are beginning to look like River City

    • Yup, He’s got both friends wondering. I thought you ARE the River City. I see that the start of the Arizona-Cincinnati game was delayed by glorious rain today. Send some my way.

  3. Glad Kenzie seems to be doing Ok..

    • I think Kenzie’s a tough terrier but She thinks he’s in bad shape. My money is on terrier tough. The one tablespoonful he ate for dinner tonight is too little. I wonder if the little guy has his own stash of food and isn’t telling me because then it would as good as gone.

  4. Glad to hear Kenzie is on the mend

  5. We hope Kenzie gets all better and think this post is really funny. Stay cool over there.

    • Thanks. The heat’s OK, but its a little humid this week. Usually it is about 5% but this week it’s been 25. The humidity is the killer.

  6. Well I guess non of his friends will be late again!
