Now that we are in the city, I do miss Autumn at our old mountain home, the big mountain skies, gorgeous sunrises and all the native plants and trees that were growing all around us.
We had 7/10ths of an acre and over a 100 pinon trees growing there.
|All that's left of our mountain home memories|
|Our front door|
|We do have one pinon tree.|
|And a large Maple in the front yard|
|And lovely flowers in pots|
|The backyard is slowly being re-landscaped to our liking.|
|Our roses are blooming...|
|along with zinnias...|
|and a small vegetable garden|
|We have a nice patio in the backyard|
|We planted a small patch of zoysia grass that is filling in nicely|
|There's a patio roof to provide cool shade on this western side of the house|
|Over our back fence is the Casa Grande Linear Park|
|We have a lovely Silk Tree and plenty of bird feeders |
and bird bath servicing the abundant bird population
|Added a pink camilia bush this week to our frontyard gated courtyard|
|The courtyard off our master bedroom facing east toward the Sanda Mountains provides a nice retreat|
The annual International Balloon Fiesta starts in a week and a half.
