Desktop Delights – July 2021

Please take a moment to view all the wonderful desktop delights other bloggers shared during July. There’s some fimaliar friends as well as some newcomers and all their desktops are delightful and worth a look.

Brian was the first to share a gorgeous photo of a Rose Robin. I did a double-take as it looks so much like the Scarlet Robin (but they are definitely two different birds indeed).

Ladysighs shared a bewitching photo of a dark green, and somewhat mysterious wood that was initially squared off for Becky’s Tree Squares. The entire photo is stunning.

Cee’s photo this month is a lovely (or lonely) dirt roadway framed with trees that also doubles as a Tree Squares entry. It reminded me of some dirt roads we drove down while in Tasmania.

Katy shared an amazing image of Cathedral Rock near Sedona, Arizona. I thought it all the more amazing as the photo was taken from the campus of her high school. It’s an incredible view.

Aletta’s desktop this month is of a weathered car in Namibia, slightly forgotten, surrounded by rocks and a couple of palms. It resides outside a gin tasting venue.

Sassy’s desktop this month shows Mellon’s Country Store located in the sleepy little town of Mountain View in the gorgeous Ozark Mountains of Arkansas where her family have lived since the 1800s. (Wow!)

Martin shared an image of an Azyet, a DAF XF105, (virtually) hauling vinegar down the E55 along the Adriatic coast of Italy . . . It looks so real I had to ask about it.

Manja, who lives in Tuscany, shared a photo of the garden set her father painted back in March and, thanks to a negative (Covid 19) test, she’s now off to see him in Piran on the Slovenian coast. Happy and safe travels, Manja.

From her other blog Becky in Portugal, Becky shared a photo of a Bubulcus Ibis or Cattle Egret that was (possibly) hunting grasshoppers. Naturally, in keeping with her July Squares, Becky also included a photo of the Ibis skulking behind the fruit of the Indian Bead Tree.

Thank you to everyone who shared their desktop images this month.

I’ll finish with a screen shot of my desktop.

It’s just another chance to show off those NightSky® Petunias.
