When I went to my friend Barb's place las weekend, she showed me her owl tree. It is actually a dead palo verde in her yard. She told me an owl likes to come and sit on it. How cool is that? We used to have an owl come sit in our cottonwood tree and I enjoyed hearing it hoot, hoot, hoot! Our sky had patchy clouds that afternoon and I stopped to view them.
