Spring has stopped by to say hello to Fall

WOW! We are crawling with flowers over here, at one of our home stores that is. I am sure you will be able to guess which big store chain I am talking about when you look through these photos. The place is surrounded by flowers. I finally had a break in my schedule to head…

Busy bees

This is my second favorite post I put together. I remember the morning I took these photos and as I watched these bees for the longest time, I realized I needed to record this live action bit of art happening right in front of my eyes. So I jumped out of the pool to go…

A bouquet a day.

  “The earth laughs in flowers.” Ralph Waldo Emerson A little over two months ago I started collecting flowers from my garden. If you are from Phoenix and live here during our summer months, then you know that flowers are pretty rare when it gets hot here. They just don’t last long. There are plenty…

 DIY- Mini cacti pots

There are babies everywhere in my garden right now, cacti that is. One early morning while I was out watering my garden and making sure the wild birds and bees had food and water I noticed there were all kinds of baby cacti everywhere. I thought how cute it would be to decorate some tiny…

Arizona is closed-

Well not really but parts of it is. A couple of weeks ago when we drove up to check on Our Little Red House we were surprised to see closure signs everywhere where happy families used to be camping and out enjoying our woods. It was really sad seeing this on our drive up. It…

Repost-Road trip time

Had to check up on the little red house for the day and as always it was a beautiful drive. How blessed the people are that get to live here. It is what I imagine living in a postcard would feel like. Went to visit the town pond, at least that is what I call…

Some Arizona sunshine for those Winter time blues.

Getting sick sucks and the thing I hate most about getting sick during the holidays is the resting period. You know, where you can’t do anything because you feel awful, so you just sit and read…cough…sit and watch TV…cough…then sleep and cough at the same time. Misery that’s what it is. And moms always get…
