Where the Wind Blows....

Happy New Year!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and that you're eating lots of good food and creating great memories watching football games, going on hikes, or just enjoying that precious time with your family.  The diet can start tomorrow:)
December has mostly been reflective in my writing with some artsy posts which also included, hopefully, some helpful info for people exploring gardening ideas in Tucson along with some travel fun around the state and beyond. Last year I made a post each day with quality work behind it.  This year, I will slow down a little....just a little:)....and not be so hard on myself.  There were some intense times as I fought to keep up with my deadlines, find important information, and interview people for data etc.  AND KEEP UP WITH MY GARDENING!!  Epic fail:)
I'm going to be posting at a slower rate this year so I may not publish a story or report everyday, but I'll still be around working on this extremely fun hobby.  So no stress if you don't see a post at 2 AM in the morning here in the States.  I'm okay, just taking it slower:)  I had two moments of pure blogger hatred. During the months of July and November, I found that I didn't want to look at the program! OR pick up my camera!  But then my writer's itch would come back and I'd start doing it all over again.  As the title suggests, this year you'll see some great stuff as trips are being planned out and I'll be all over the place.  Who knows?  Maybe I'll be in your neck of the woods this year! It all has to do with my past and connections to old stay tuned for what will sure to be some exciting adventure both in the garden and around our amazing country.  This month I have several features on some Tucson plants, the garden, and some memoirs I found in a box last month.  Happy New Year to everyone!  May this year bring us all happiness and health!

  3. blogging should be fun! otherwise, take a break and don't do it for a while! :)

  4. Beautiful photos, as always!

  8. Happy New Year, Chris. Thanks for all your visits and nice comments. I hope to see more of you in the year to come.

  9. I do daily posts now, for the 12 Days of Christmas. That is enough of daily posts to last me for the whole rest of the year. Most of us read lots of blogs and daily posts get daunting. Will enjoy following your journey this year!


Thanks for stopping by!
