Back at the hacienda, Stanley went into full swing. Within three days, he had the grass mowed, and the upper vineyard was perfectly pruned. Some things don't need any attention at all.
Tiny cactus blooms
Little yellow flowers
The hummingbird tree
Daisys and agave
The roadrunner was still in the garden
The pecan tree was still wearing the dried up leaves of last fall.
And the desert was still dry, dry, dry!
