Picture: Like Cats and Dogs

I will comfort you (ooo)
I’ll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Bridge over Troubled Water, Simon & Garfunkel

JBRish is on a Brief Hiatus

Hello JBRish readers. I want to let you know that we will be on hiatus for a while. I know, I know, we just got back up and running after our computer issues and now we are going on hiatus.

We will use the time to complete the process of restoring our files to their appropriate organization and of course plan more interesting posts along the way.

Until then, I think many JBRish readers will connect with the picture below as they look forward to the summer season; ENJOY!

Ironwood Trees in the Sonoran Desert

My wife and I feel very fortunate to live in North Phoenix in an area that is considered “the desert.” It has its issues of course such as all the animals that want to eat our plants, invade our house and bite or sting us. Other than that, it is a beautiful area. No, really! It is very beautiful. So many people think of the Sonoran Desert as a desolate place, but it has a lot of color, a variety of plants and flowers and of course an abundance of animals.

We get pleasure from the natural landscape that surprises us with waves of color during certain times of the year. One such plant that found a home on our land without any human help is an Ironwood tree. It is amazing how this tree can survive with all of the animals digging holes around the roots and the dearth of water. Truth be told, I do “sneak” some extra water to it now and then although it doesn’t like our household water too much because of the salts and chlorine.

Here is a picture of the Ironwood tree that has seen its share of trials and yet it continues to provide a blanket of pink each spring. My only regret is that it wasn’t near one of our Palo Verde trees for the photo which, this year, have been covered with an overabundance of yellow blooms. Did someone say pollen?
