|Just a dusting of snow|
No, we're not having snow this month here in the Chihuahuan Desert. It's hot, and we're nearing the end of our monsoon season. Out here in the agricultural areas north of Las Cruces, it's apparently prime time for mosquitoes and flies. And of course, it's pretty darned hot (oops, I mentioned that before!), so I've been avoiding the outdoors and have been seeking quiet, contemplative pastimes, like a furious and sweaty "spring" cleaning of every room, every surface--go figure!
Long story short, I dug around in the files for these photos from last winter, which were taken facing the front porch.
I really love the thought right now of those crisp, cold days when we could smell the delicious aroma of the piñon fires burning in the kiva fireplace. Let's face it, some people are never satisfied with the weather they have!
