Almost every morning except Sunday we exercise: Bill walks and skips rope; Ann walks, dances, and stretches. We have a favorite route through the garden: 200 long steps = 200 meter track. This blog is mostly for us.
|Off the porch and past the monk's hood.|
|Around the garage. Notice the triple padlocks on the rear gate.|
|Out of the garage toward the front gate. To the left are lovely tiny yellow-flowered bushes and the sentinel's shack. We don't have a night sentinel but rely on the Lord to protect us. The gardener uses it for his stuff.|
|Some mornings the little lizard living in the bush suns himself.|
|We have 3 pepper plants - all volunteers. Now they are tall and producing little red peppers, very hot. All our visitors go away happy.|
|Here is our volunteer pumpkin. It is growing in the dirt accumulated at this drain. The vines are now about 15 feet long with lots of flowers and 4 pumpkins have appeared with two already victims of brown rot.|
|At the steps into the gazebo this lovely 5-pedaled white flower keeps producing.|
|Obstacle: the kitten hiding on the step from the gazebo.|
|Past the voyager palm. It's called "voyager" because new leaves appear in the middle, one growing to the left, the next to the right.|
|The gray truck with the "laissez-passé" in the window. The paper used to get me into the airport inner parking plot but no longer.|
|This moth decided to spend the day on the concrete wall of our house.|
|After the 20 minute walk is the jumprope. I'm up to 250 repetitions. Looks like I really enjoy it.|
|After her walk, Ann swept the front porch.|
|This is what she swept. If she had waited an hour, these little ants would have completed the sweeping for her.|
We look forward to continuing our walks, especially around Oquirrh Lake and down Lake Bridge past the temple.
