Now we are back to “real” time and I have been home about a month. I love being back but it always feels like I am being punished for going away. The trees and plants were overgrown and the ants had been working overtime. I finally realized it was wise to just let the ants do their thing. They bring up the most wonderful dirt when they make their big cones. I just rake it around. It is much easier to work with than the hard desert dirt. I have a feeling one day that my house will just disappear into a giant ant den.
The bunnies love all the trimming. I usually leave the cut branches piled up for awhile. I try to remember to not come out of the office (shed) at full speed and scare them off. One afternoon there were seven of them chomping away at the big green salad. They also help keep the yard clean by eating the mesquite tree pods. They take them by one end and chomp them into their mouths, a little like slurping spaghetti.
These are a few of the pictures I took of the stormy skies right after I got back. God bless until next week!
