The remnants of a hurricane swept through. The wash was running quite strongly last night, even down outside our house. The kestrel who has been here the last few weeks was sitting on a saguaro, rich and brown in the emerging sunlight. The hackberry bush berries are starting to change color, shades of orange creeping from the tip to the base over the green. Saw some very fresh looking ant nests, conical volcanoes with lots of activity. I guess they are rebuilding after the rain.
