Bringing in the New Year is also a time of looking forward to the prospect of winter rains and the subsequent spring flowering of the Sonoran Desert. In the photos above, I have captured a few of the cacti blooms on camera that grow wild in my yard.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
