The ABQ Garden Revisited

Now that we're finally coming out of our unseasonably hot streak, I can wander back into the garden for more than just the minutes it takes to water to keep the poor plants alive. I have a lot of first year plants that went in in the spring. So far, I have lost one lavender, one straightneck squash and one cat nip.

Upside-Down Joy: The Woman on the Flying Trapeze

Last time I was upside-down was when I flipped my wheelchair, which I wrote about this lesson in the… Continue
