It's Up at 5 A.M and then home around 12:30 P.M.

Yup, I went back to work part-time at my last former employer - good ole Wally World.  Except I am in the best department - lawn and garden.  I am in my element, just a different climatic environment.  I get to see so many "smiling flowering faces" in the morning.

It's been almost a year since I put the house on the market and - need I say more when one is supporting two places. No, I don't regret moving when I did.

I am still enjoying this spring so much - the cactus flowers are so beautiful.

 The SW Bird of Paradise trees have put forth such beautiful flowers.

We had a young squirrel for awhile, but haven't seen him for several weeks - he lived in the cinder block fence for awhile.  He is eating a fruit from a prickly pear cactus.

A few hummingbirds are still around. The gold finches have disappeared.

We have not had any rain for quite awhile and so the dust is frequently present.  If we can't see Mt Caballo, to our south, it is really dusty out. 
Mt Caballo is just south of Turtleback Mt, that is visible.
We stay inside.  Today, it is smoke from the Signal Peak fire - located about 10 miles north of Silver City on the west side of the state.

Well, it's getting close to bedtime - 5 a.m. comes early.  Work starts at 7 a.m. and I am the "watering" girl. Well, a 72 year old watering "girl".
