Tumbleweed Crossing is about living on the desert west of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I have posted several photos of the red claret cup cactus that I have in a big pot in my yard. This year it put on some nice fruit or seed pods. I am hoping they ripen so I can collect the seed and to try to grow some from the seed.
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.
