We've been waiting and waiting for it to be cold enough to start a fire. Finally. This fire pit was actually laid by the previous owners, under a pile of trash. The tamarisk are coming back and actually start to look romantic. We spent the day picking up trash (what else), and planted two new trees: a mesquite and a palo verde. Slowly, slowly.
Anna does most of the writing. Ted does most of the photos. But sometimes we switch. We are repairing a distressed property in 29 Palms, California, and eventually hope to run an artist residency there.
