So, back at the ranch. . . .
The Flying LC brand can be seen throughout the property.
Part of the hacienda. The landscaping is really well done. . . .
I believe these flowers are alstroemeria, but I’ve never seen them growing outdoors, or with variegated foliage.
Orange trees thrive near the hacienda
and in the open
What we weren’t expecting to see:
A white peacock, my first.
A few seconds later, he was on the roof:
Traditional peacocks are all over the grounds. I’d never been around birds that tame and hadn’t seen them up close. One of them was showing off in a big way. . . .
He kept turning as I was shooting,
all the while making a buzzing sound with his feathers.
Finally, I saw what he looked like in the back. These feathers were moving the whole time too:
Usually peacocks are skittish and run as soon as you get close. This bird didn’t mind the camera one bit.
According to Wikipedia, The Cisco Kid was the first television program to be filmed in color. By 1955, it was the most popular TV show for kids in the U.S. The series also had the first Hispanic actors; Desi Arnaz would come along a year later.
Hope your week’s going well so far. . . .
