It's been a while since I posted here, so allow me to share some 2010 Spring in the Desert color and life.

After church today, there was a fellowship in the Community Center.
The dove is patiently waiting for the quail to move from the feeder. Notice the Cholla cactus in the background. Speaking of the Cholla, this one is showing off it's blooms in the sunshine.

They are so elusive, but I finally got a picture of a few quail chicks this morning. They are tiny and barely visible in the sand of the cactus garden.

Due to so many leaving for the season, the Gospel Jam Session crowd was down to about one third the normal size. It was a great session, though, and enjoyed by all in attendance.Thelma, Donna and Dorie Trio.
We had the pleasure of enjoying a visiting fiddle player.
G.H. played his accordion and sang.
Dennis adds his harmonica to the jam sessions and does a great job. He can play anything and beautifully.
Don plays his guitar and sings.
Thumper plays the bass guitar and also sings.
After each person on stage has had their turn at the mic, there's a break for fifteen minutes and then the second half begins. Each one has the opportunity to sing and/or play two songs during each jam session. Here, Dorie belts out another gospel tune. She's been entertaining for a long time and currently goes to several local senior care centers to entertain. They love it when she comes to play and sing for them.
Virgil sings "Long Black Train."
During the fiddle players rendition of "Amazing Grace," Dorie asked everyone to stand and sing. Afterwards, while still standing we closed the jam session with "God Bless America."

Bicycling is a favorite at Sunscape and so is Dorie. You can see her playing her guitar and singing every Wednesday evening at the Jam Session in the Community Center at 7:00 PM. In the Oleander hedge row are light pink....
