On an early evening walk down to the pond, I noticed these Blue Dicks blooming off the side of the road. There’s not much in bloom in this high-desert grassland right now – so any color catches my eye!! The lavender flowers contrast nicely with the orange-red, sandy soil in the background.
We lingered at the pond watching the tree swallows dipping and swooping above the water. They were particularly active tonight and I managed to catch several picking up insects off the surface of the water. The photos are not professional-grade but still pretty cool!! They are soooooo entertaining!
