I am so very glad that Fall is here. I enjoy the rain of the summer months and the greening of Arizona, but the humidity is more than I can bear sometimes. The older I get, the less tolerant I am of heat and humidity.
As we began our Sunday morning-before-church-walk, Joe decided to pick one of our apples. This is the first year they have born fruit, so this has been exciting indeed! Look at that gorgeous deep blue sky..........
Walking north along the pump back ditch path................beautiful and peaceful.
Looking back towards the house. Yes, a lovely Sunday........lower humidity, temperature around 80*, beautiful and majestic scenery. Just a little bit of paradise, except for one thing..........................
This stuff is so nasty! It grows like crazy once the monsoon rains begin, and Joe and David are both violently allergic to it. It makes them sneeze, wheeze, and just generally feel miserable. Once the rains stop, the weeds dry up and die - and then my allergy boys feel better once again.
Isaac and Joshua were a big help as we dug it out of the dog pen. Pigweed season is at its end - Fall is here!
