WE HAVE had several nice rains and I have to remember that the "rains" here are different than in Kansas. I guess I would call them more like desert squalls - in, dump rain, and gone. The mulberry tree is shedding its leaves and I "raked" up the leaves. I have never "raked" up leaves on a gravel yard before using a leaf blower - like chasing a herd of cats. I got it figured out. I have trimmed a Mormon Tea bush that has grown into the alley because the trash truck is running over the bush in its trek to getting to the trash dumpster.
MUCH LATER: It's snowing, its snowing right now. Took a couple of pictures of the snow coming down and a couple cactus plants in the yard:
|The "beavertail", as I call it.|
|Yucca in snow|
|Yucca still blooming in the "bloomin" snow|
|Truck partially under the carport cover.|
UNPACKING of boxes is pretty much done, just a couple more to go. Still some odds and ends I need to put somewhere but not in big rush.
|Picture I took of living room awhile back; and|
|now. Much better but not done.|
|Now if I could just move that pole. That red splotch|
just to the middle right, is our life flight helicopter. It
is pretty close and stationed at the hospital.
