I haven’t felt good for a few days, so was forced to stay inside and rest. While I ‘rested’ I’ve been crocheting. The patterns are from the book Yummi ‘Gurumi…except the lemon cake. I made that one after doing the other cake.
Just a cold, I’m much better today. This is my favorite time of year and I’m ready to get outside and take some photos!

Today George went to snake avoidance class at Desert Wildlife Services here in Tucson.
I was shocked when he just walked right up to the snake with no fear at all. The snake is muzzled.
After the training began, he wouldn’t go near the snake.
He was brought up to the snake to force him to get the scent good.
At the end of the class he did not even want to look at it.
We watched a Golden Retriever before George’s class began.
Here’s a photo with the rattlesnake muzzled.
Michael is a remarkable teacher. He is pictured above in the striped shirt. Along with his brother, they form a great team, not only training your dog, but calming them down in between the sessions with the snake. The whole process took less than 10 minutes. I think it’s the best $75 I could spend on my pet.
You may visit their Desert Wildlife Services site to look at all their offerings.

The Santa Rita cactus are blooming out back. Just started 4 days ago. This bee is all up in the flower before it even opened all the way.
When they open all the way they look like this:
The yellow is beautiful against the lavender and green pads of the cactus.
