Trying to Bloom
It looks like we are starting to have a bit of spring. The willow trees are greening up. The ornimental pear is blooming although the flowers are windblown, and my cottonwood trees are blooming their strange little, 2 inch long yellow blossoms.
Retirement has finally come and I find myself living on a small property on the New Mexico desert. I live with my husband and my pets that include 4 cats, 2 dogs, 2 horses, and 2 ponies. Most of our pets were in need of a good home when I took them in. I like to raise flowers, and houseplants, and I try to garden but it can be difficult here on this sand dune. I sometimes attempt to write fiction and nonfiction stories. I love to take photos and share them. I enjoy watching the sun rise in the morning and the moon rise in the evening, and love watching nature. I am an avid reader of fiction books with westerns and mysteries being my favorites.
