Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

MORE flower photos to make folks in the east envious!

I know...I'm evil!  (heh, heh!)...Out here in Southern California, our winter growing season is just beginning.  The Peter Rabbit Farms owns the property on 2 sides of our school and they just finished putting in their watering sprinklers for the carrots they grow on two large fields.  One field is north of the school and the other one is right across the street.  Maybe I'll take some photos today with my cell phone...Farmers are growing lettuce, radishes, cauliflower, broccoli, and even asparagus right now.  I'll stop after school and TRY to remember to take some photos.  I always enjoy driving out through the fields...

ANYWAY, 6 more days of school (i.e. CHAOS this time of year) and then 3 weeks off!  Whoo, whoo! I CANNOT wait!  I'm SO looking forward to retirement!  However, this little class is so sweet!  I know I'll just be a big pile of tears when they leave...sigh...They really are sweethearts (well, there are a couple of exceptions!)  Yesterday, one of the district teachers on special assignment came by.  She has done some writing lessons with them and they brought EVERY SINGLE KID a beautifully-colored lead pencil and a bubblegum-flavored candy cane!  WOW!  You should have seen their eyes!  I'm one of the very few teachers who actually implements her ideas in the classroom and I've given her some work samples and I've taken photos and shared them with her.  I always enjoy trying new ideas!

Well, time to go...
Enjoy your day!

Nice. I just noticed today that some trees in front of our local school are starting to turn yellow. Our winter is everyone else's fall.

I'm envious because you have color and we only have white right now.
