The sky is a beautiful blue. Most welcome after these past days of gray sky, rain and snow!
Crane WatchingMarch 2013
The wind rocks the car and I've ﬁnally given up and closed the window. Large, dried weeds are being tossed across the road.
I have a goodly number of botanical references, but the information given in www.swcoloradowildﬂowers.com has been signiﬁcant for my writing.

Another cold, snowy day. So I'll just step into a past spring and go with my birding buddy Karen on a day-trip to Moab, Utah.

Soon I'll be headed for the Crane Festival in Monte Vista, March 8-10. I've been there many times and this year I'll present my PowerPoint entitled "WHOOPERS!"

I'm a native of Colorado, but years ago I left to teach school in Las Vegas, Nev. There I met the native plants of the Mojave Desert and I've been amazed and enamored by all native plants since then.
The countryside is in shades of grays and tans, but a bit more white than I like. I do wish the snow would melt and give its moisture to our thirsty fields!

Cold. When it comes to cold, I'm really a "wimp."
