110 degrees expected today and all week. Actually, this is the forecast for most of June.
The riparian park experiences the heat, too. Bushes die, ponds are drained, birds fly north.
This pond has been left to dry out for the summer.
But there are 6 other ponds for the birds to populate.
Some of the bird blinds are abandoned for the summer.
The morning glare hits hard.
And the only person I saw was the "Tai Chi man" (no photos, please),
practicing his moves amid the flowers, cacti and cobwebs.
The early mornings in summer are lovely.
Hot and a bit sticky, but the air is loud
with insects and birds.
Some days we just can't see the birds for the beauty.
