on this lovely morning in southern New Mexico. Here are some of the things around the farm.
More bottle gourds growing~I love their flowers.
Spider web on the hoses.
My zinnias~I am looking at a vase filled with zinnias as I type!
The garden is still producing. We have sweet peppers, jalapenos,
yellow squash, zucchini, pattypan squash, tomatoes, lots of herbs a
volunteer melon plant that is still producing,
peas, and volunteer cilantro. Note the weeds~we
had the rainiest past few months that I think NM has had in many years.
Oh the weeds are crazy~and in my brain~filled with zillions of rattlesnakes!
The thorns of the mesquite. A typical day for me includes having
my attention grabbed for but a moment by one of the mesquite!
Because of the rains we have so many noxious plants growing,
pretty to the eye, but ACHOOO!
One of our wood areas. We have several areas of wood. Some are
seasoning for next year, some are hard woods and others may work
for a project or two. Cutting, chopping, and splitting wood fills the
evenings in October.
Samson on the hunt for a rodent. He has been ever so generous
with his hunts and leaves a present on the porches for us~sigh.
One of the braided mesquites Bill has been working on.
Oh how lovely to look at as we walk down the lane.
Did I say ACHOO?
Thanks for taking a walk with me, sorry about sneezing, but those
pretty yellow flowers are the black pepper of New Mexico!
