There and Back again
I am home!!! We left Denver in a snowstorm on Thursday, to arrive in Joshua Tree in the evening. There is nothing like your own bed. I was so happy to see my husband! Happier still, I feel relieved that my Mom is at home, and she seems to be gaining strength every day. It was hard to leave her, but I really DID need to get back home to my husband and my life. (and Mr. Pono, too of course!)
What a switch, leaving the snow of Denver to walk the next morning in the desert. Now the cactus are beginning to bloom, and it is spectacular!!! I had no idea these cactus flowers were so vivacious. The beavertail were budding before I left, and now they are really beginning to startle my eyes with their vibrant fuscia flowers. I love them!!! So I have been running around, taking as many photos as possible.
It was over 80 degrees Farenheit today in the desert. My friend Pamela is visiting from Hawaii. (She came to Colorado and helped me immensely with my mother.) We are enjoying the sunshine, enjoying the fact that we aren't going to the hospital every day. Life is good right now, and I hope to return to my blog in a more regular manner. I missed you all, dear readers. I truly did.
