#CMWM: #Prescott Walk #12

I know it’s Sunday, and I’m late with Cee’s Mid-Week Madness post, but I’ll tell you, she’s very forgiving. I’m trying to work smarter not harder as I blog, so her next CMWM will be aligned with my challenge, Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays.

Meanwhile, I’m late with Lens Artist Photo Challenge but you should definitely stop and see Amy’s beautiful gardens. I’m going to be late with Sunday Stills which is weather, and all I have for her so far is a Prescott Walk weather report.

#Prescott Walk #12: Blooming Hills Drive

Last night Puppy Girl and I walked down Blooming Hills Drive taking pictures of beautiful weeds along the sidewalk. The weather was a perfect near 70 degrees with only a gentle breeze instead of a gale. Pale clouds dotted the sky.

Yes, I did say “beautiful weeds,” and I didn’t mean cannabis.

“The term weed is applied to any plant that grows or reproduces aggressively, or is invasive outside its native habitat.” Wikipedia

  1. Do you sometimes have the feeling that someone is shortening your day when you’re not looking, Marsha? Too many challenges, not enough day? You make me smile with your full on approach to life. 🙂 🙂 And those are transatlantic weeds you’ve got there. I’m sure I saw some of them in our lanes.

  2. Good morning, Marsha. You are never late, and I’ll look forward to your Arizona weather! I just linked today’s SS post to WQW with something about weather from John Muir! Your noxious weeds are as lovely as mine, hey, we’ll take what we can get, right? Have a great day!

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
