My first clue this morning that something unusual was going on was this reflection in the door... Wait, what's that blue stuff?
Stepping out onto the patio for my morning dose of mountain views, I saw that we were surrounded by a lovely lake.
I have been looking forward to seeing the orchards around our property being irrigated. If you have ever traveled through this part of the country you will know that the pecan orchards (and some lawns, if the owners have irrigation rights) are simply flooded in order to water them.
The birds and the occasional duck are very happy. If you turn up your volume to view this video you may hear robins, doves, and perhaps even a red-winged blackbird.
Faraway people who may picture the Chihuahuan Desert as a dry and dusty place have no idea how lucky we feel to live in this beautiful oasis, the Mesilla Valley.
