Spring Walk

Allen and I decided to tour nearby Tonaquint Park which has a new All Abilities Park, gardening spots, and bird sanctuary. We also walked along the Santa Clara River trail.

All Abilities park has playground, train and volcano!
Train goes through a tunnel and over a bridge around the park
New desert landscaping and walking paths are fun
Next door are small garden plots for rent: $30/year.
Notice all the shields from the sun in preparation for hot summers
Fun to see real trees again in the park area.
Spring daffodils are in full bloom
Love the sweet smells
So many blooms on this tree!
Notice all the pine cones, it's healthy!
On to the Nature Center-a bird sanctuary next to the Santa Clara River

Lots of birds gather here on their way north this time of year.
Every duck is looking for a mate this time of year
Interesting color....he stands out in the crowd
Always love swans, this one is alone, must has lost its mate.

Your world is Springing up quite lovely, Lin! Enjoyed your pics, but especially taken with the daffodil pic. Oh to see so many in one spot. I feel a little sad for the lone swan.

Wishing you a lovely weekend!
