My good friends, Janet & Corita, the three of us have a love affair with Appaloosas, the spotty breed, bred for endurance.
We meet up, every spring, to enjoy the perpetual sunshine in northern Arizona.
Here's our 'spotties' drying off in the warmth of the sun after a much needed bath.

|Forced Tulip bulbs growing indoors.|
Okay! It's official! The absolute, hands down, best job in the my ski resort hometown of Park City, Utah for this season was.... snow plow driver. Seeing as how we never got any snow. Nix, nada, nuttin. So their job was to sit around and wait for what never planned to come.
|The bay window flowers that keep me busy, indoors, in winter.|
|Again, indoors, spring comes late in the mountains. Daffs bloom outdoors in May.|
|A new re-blooming Orchid!|
A wonderland to ski in and play in and give thanks for the change season. Not this long, long season of heavy, grey skies, constant rains, and the obligatory river of squishy, squashy mud.
|I forced a collection of pink/white Tulip bulbs for bright color indoors.|
But the times, they are a changing. In that we get to turn our clocks back an hour. And enjoy the longer days.
It's a domino effect. The moment the after work hours provide sunlight, horse season begins.
It may take the better part of the afternoon to scrape off all that squishy squashy mud but saddles will go on, the first ride of the season will happen.
No more lollygagging around the barn for them. No more lazy, scheming, dreaming, garden sessions on the couch, for me.
And, so it begins! The infinitely busier and considerably more exciting - summery half of the year. I'm ready. Are you? :)
