Yesterday evening

When I got home I took a few photos. Here is the Methley plum (in the shadows) just to show you the blossoms.

Sunset viewed from my bedroom window.

Today we have the spring winds. I noticed everything in the garden swaying in the wind earlier. Then, much later in the day, I remembered that since the garbage and recycling folks had come by it was time to bring in my bins. Since a garbage bin had once blown who knows where, I was hoping I could retrieve them.

Sure enough, bins had been blown over and traveled about the street. I searched for the distinctive marks of mine with no luck. Then I turned to look back up the street and realized a very kind neighbor had brought mine from the curb and parked them next to my garage. When I exited the garage I was not looking immediately to my side and thus had missed them.

The winds continue to howl, throwing up dust and letting me know the dust storm season is now here. Not my favorite time in Albuquerque, but part of the admission price.

Lovely pictures and yum-yum plums to cum. The poetry flows.

And how are you feeling, Pablito?
