"S"...ABC Wednesday, May 26, 2010




"S" is for SHADE. Shade is very important to us who live in the desert southwest. Being in the shade can lower the temperature outdoors by several degrees in the SUMMER. Even on a mild Spring day, being in the shade can lower the temperature. This shade is at the Meerkat Cafe at the Living Desert Reserve, in Palm Desert, CA. After walking around for an hour last weekend, my uncle and I stopped here to sit in the shade. Isn't it a beautiful patio? There were several hummingbirds buzzing around, getting nectar from the shrubs that were blossoming. Other small birds enjoy the shrubs, too! ABC Wednesday for May 26, 2010.

The SHADE is important for me re SUNBURN.

It's like an oasis. I bet the hummingbirds were great.

I have visited Palm Springs and Palm Desert - in the summer, even shade is not quite enough for me, but in the spring and fall, it's wonderful.
Nice post, nice photos.
