New Mexico: One Day, Three Seasons

April 17th, 2016 § 0 comments

Yes, HG loves New Mexico and the four season weather. (Winter is brief and mild. Summer can be fiery so HG/BSK spend that season beside the Prince Edward Island sea. Spring and Autumn are the seasons dreams are made of). The Land of Enchantment weather god changes her/his mind quite often. Take today, for example. HG awoke to spring weather. The gardens were ablaze with daffodils, hyacinths, tulips. (Peonies will soon be on their way). BSK’s herb garden was sprouting rosemary,thyme, sage, mint, tarragon and parsley. The apple trees were in full bloom. Trees were beginning to green. The meadows looked colorful. HG sat under the wisteria pergola, sipped morning coffee and enjoyed the action of the fish in the HG/BSK Koi pond. (Industrious BSK keeps the finny fellows healthy and active). By noon, summer had arrived. Bright sunshine. HG changed into shorts. Strolled with Toby, The Wonder Dog. Sunbathed on the pool house sun deck. Hot. Hot. Sizzle time. Into the pool for a cooling 20 laps. Out for more sun. Back in the pool for another 20 laps. A bit more sun. Hot shower. Dried in the sun. A true recipe for relaxation. Glass of Campari and soda in hand, HG watched the sun disappear. Temperature zoomed downwards. Time for a blaze in the fireplace since it was now late autumn. Splendid dinner. Watched DVD’s of “Mad Men” (missed it when on TV). Off to bed. Would not be surprised to see dusting of snow in the morning.
