Bleak but it's own kind of beauty...

Re Barbara: Believe it or not I am only 5 minutes away from the mall. We are smack dab in the middle of urban sprawl. This piece of land behind me Amon Creek Waterway is about a 50 acre preserve, that they are trying to expand and save from development. The Tri Cities WA where I live has a population of about 170,000. The next largest city is about an hour away. We live on The Columbia Plateau, a shrub steppe desert . When I first moved here with my family from N.Y. in the 70's I thought we were living in an old John Wayne movie, tumble weeds and all.

This is the type of country I grew up in and it feels like home. I enjoy striding there too. Thanks for the two posts.

I like the weather here. It's dry. It doesn't always look pretty but it works for me.

Good Morning:

Just a quick note to thank you for visiting my blog. It is so nice to hear from readers and what they enjoy about differnet posts.

What a lovely home you have. That courtyard looks perfect for morning coffee and contemplation.

And what a luck girl you are, all that wild sageland and wetlands. Truly a beauty to behold.

Hope to hear from you again soon,
