Cotton is a major crop in southern New Mexico. But the drought didn't do the cotton crop any good this year. 1st photo is of cotton still on the plants that were dead at this time of the year. Most of the fields had already been harvested.
Retirement has finally come and for the first few years I lived as a "desert rat" on a small chunk of desert land in Rio Rancho, NM. Recently my husband and I moved to Bedford, KY so we would be near my son. It has been quite an experience. We are on 30 acres that includes open areas and forest. My own pets include 4 cats, 1 dog, 2 horses, and 2 ponies. All pets were adopted from shelters. I like to raise flowers, and houseplants, and I try to garden. 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.
