Meanwhile back at the ranch…..episode 21

and the drought goes on…….

even after rain one week ago, the days dawn bright and clear, temperatures too warm by mid-morning to work comfortably in the direct sun;

restricted to watering only twice a week, the lawn has stayed miraculously green.


 Confusion rains reigns in the garden

Popcorn tree roses


and this one whose name escapes me, believe it to be spring.


Being November with daily temperatures nearing 90 degrees, the more tender light of fall consoles us;


the hedge roses near the front porch soldier on seemingly unaffected, bathing us in beauty.



our hearts are full of gratitude even as we long for rain.
