Tortoise is curled up for the night, protected by a bit of fallen chaparral.

The vibrant dusk of a Dreamy Desert is perfect for any space and encourages restfulness and joy. The happy animals depicted in this peaceful, watercolor series rest under a dreamy sunset filled with smiling stars.

Painted in K. Ryan Henisey’s award winning style, each illustration originally appeared in Dreamy Desert, an illustrated sleepy time ebook for children.

Reds and yellows blossom under a deep, restful sky. Each animal type is prominently displayed in a pose of restful sleep. Smiling stars keep watch over the dreaming landscapes.

Find your rest in the Dreamy Desert. http://kryanhenisey.com/art/

For the last 25 years, desert tortoises have been listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Urbanization, disease, and fragmentation of the desert have put these reptiles in danger. Find out why these days, you’re more likely to find a desert tortoise living in a suburban backyard than the desert, their natural habitat. Nick Hardcastle chats with the California Turtle and Tortoise Club about the process involved with tortoise adoption, and visits the home of a SoCal family that has recently adopted Rocky, a 25-year-old desert tortoise. Don’t miss it on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Visit bit.ly/tortoiseadoption for more info.

Gabe’s noming style was more Long Distance Noming than Sprinting. 12 plates later he continued to snack while his competitors napped in the shade. 

Nothing better than hangin’ by the pool on a summers day. Hydration is important for staying healthy and maintaining your good looks (it also lends itself to quality photos for the paparazzi)
