status report

The orange and lemon trees are covered with swelling buds. The air is already heavy with the scent of the orange blossoms. Soon it will be overwhelming.

The sky was impossibly blue today, without even the memory of a cloud. The rose bushes are as laden as the citrus trees, although a few rogue blooms are already showing.

It was positively hot in the sun, but the shade was delightful. Everyone is happy to be outside these days.

Well, everyone, that is, except The Cat (sometimes). Obviously our foolish attempt to keep her from sleeping on the desk by allowing it to become consumed by clutter has failed utterly.

I loved the smell of the citrus trees when I was stationed in Scotsdale, AZ for a couple of months in the spring.

Hiking the Superstition Mountains was also a blast. We used to drive up Camelback during thunderstorms and watch the lightning occasionally.

Wonderful place Arizona - you are lucky you live there.

Still not like New England, but a nice place to live.
