So cold weather has come or maybe? It’s has been so cold for about a week (at night) daytime is perfect if the wind isn’t blowing. Frost got the flowers for the year but some of the green leaves are hanging in there. They are pretty tuff plants. River and I went out to watch and or chase the birds lol so I snapped a couple pictures. I have been working on taking apart the garden beds in the garden and sifting the dirt . That way I can make the dirt much better with some work. Container gardening is the answer for me at my age and because the moles and gophers are relentless. So to live peacefully with them I choose to have containers. Better for me anyway.
This is a picture of a mesquite tree in our back garden area. This is where the birds come to eat the food I put out for them. River, our sweet little boy we adopted this summer, likes to chase the birds and play ball.
You can see the awesome wood pile, in the background, we have to keep us warm. The squirrels love the wood pile. They are out there playing all day long unless the hawks come by.
This is River and his tennis ball. He loves to play catch.
We had a beautiful flower garden this year that brought us a lot of good feelings. Here are some pictures.
Even though the summer was way too hot we had a good time. It’s always a blessing to see all the flowers , herbs , and birds.
Good morning! We have finally come around to really nice cooler weather here in Cornville, Arizona. It was a very dry hot summer so this is a real relief. I decided to show a beaded belt bag that we made a week or so ago. It is made in soft saddle tan leather and along with the belt loop we made a 4 point braided strap so our customers can wear it as a shoulder bag as well as a belt bag. This leather hip bag has a beaded eagle. I started beading the beaded eagle first. Here is a work in progress picture. I had just finished the rosette.
This beaded eagle has the eagle in the center and the 4 direction colors around the outside.
The next thing is making the belt bag and sewing the rosette down . Once the rosette is sewn down it’s time to lace around the beadwork.
Here is the finished product. This beaded belt bag is made to order and comes in a variety of colors of leather and also can be purchased with or without the braided strap. Here is a link directly to the bag

Wishing everyone a beautiful day! Planting and watching things grow is all part of the journey this time of year. Milkweed is a plant that I found out about when I injured my knee some years ago. A friend told me of a place that made a healing balm that helps with pain and helps restore mobility. It is full of antioxidants and packed with omega 3 and omega 7 fatty acids, magnesium, zinc and calcium helping to fight pain and inflammation. This is where you can purchase this balm and seeds if you wish. https://milkweedbalm.com
Milkweed is the sole food for Monarch butterflies. So when planting this beautiful plant you are helping the butterflies migrate to and from Mexico or California.
I have found that this plant, this balm has been very helpful as I have grown older and have some aches and pains. It has also helped to heal my knee.
Last year I decided to grow some in my container garden. I didn’t know how well they would do in Arizona. This year they all came back and are even stronger than last year. The flowers are so very beautiful.
I am thinking of painting this bucket yellow one day. It needs a little makeover. 🙂
This last container has had a slower go of it. It might need a little more sun. It’s at the other end of the garden by some trees. But still very beautiful . I am going to be adding some compost and helping everyone along their way.
I love this plant and everything about it. It brings me joy everytime I look at it’s bright orange flowers.

Spring is here and it feels so awesome. It’s so grounding to work in the garden and play in the dirt. The rose bush is starting to get it’s new leaves and a few seeds are starting to sprout. The first flowers have shown their faces and the weather is warm and cold. Just like spring. We woke up to spring showers with thunder and lightning this morning. The birds are singing strong and all is well. Here are a few spring pictures from our Arizona home.
