Okay, I'm reaching here. I wanted to stay within the theme guidelines for this month, but after writing about pets and frogs on the ninth, nothing much inspired me. I'm going to ramble and see where I end up.
|Blackberries - before|
Keep America Beautiful - I think we're doing our part. Our house was empty for over a year. The grass was dead in most spots and non-existent in others. The fruit trees were stunted and the blackberry bushes looked dead. But what a difference a couple of months make - along with a little water and backbreaking work. And what else? We don't litter. I can remember growing up in Phoenix and tossing whatever we didn't want in the car out the window. It bothered me even then. Now that I think back, it's so hard to imagine doing that. Why oh why would you throw your trash out the car window to litter the roads and scenery?

Brenda and her husband are gypsies at heart having lived in six states and two countries. Recently, they moved to prairie country in Arizona and are enjoying the wide-open spaces while tending fruit trees and veggie gardens. They share their space with their dog, Rusty. When Brenda isn’t at her laptop writing, she enjoys hiking, motorcycle riding and the company of good friends.
