Yesterday, I spent an afternoon visiting the Como Conservatory as I do many times during the year. While always beautiful and ever changing with a variety of flowers, this year I became fascinated with the ferns that attach to a wall and needing no nutrients from the soil, but only from the surrounding air. Equally beautiful were the many orchids that were in bloom along with other flowers, particularly mums.
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.
