My cousin, Valerie, emailed me last week and asked if I wanted to go with her last Monday to a ranch down by La Quinta. She was going there to watch a man work one of his horses who was afraid of ropes. So, I said, "Sure!" and gathered up my camera. Good thing, because Val's had a "read" error and wouldn't take photos that day! It was a cloudy day and the forecast was for rain, so we headed off at 9:00 a.m. Now I don't know how many times I passed right by this ranch and didn't even know it was there! So, it was fun to actually visit it. Here are some pics from our day there. Also, as soon as the gentleman finished his training session with the horse, who is now no longer afraid of ropes, it started to POUR! It was our last rain until maybe next week. My sunflowers have grown another foot and my daisies are in full bloom!
