Earth Day 2008

First:  Thank you for all the kitchen love!!

Second:  Happy Earth Day!!! One of my favorite days of the year and I had to work.  Ah well, as my Super-E says, “it’s earth day every day!”  My little earth guys are so smart!

Right now, the weather here in Southern AZ has been incredible. We’ve been trying to spend as much time outside as possible, before it gets too hot.    Hiking, bird watching & desert exploring has been on the top of the list.

Ocotillo plants are hands down my most favorite desert plant.  They are in full bloom this time of year and the Sonoran desert is spotted throughout with bright bursts of orange.

 You can see where much of my color inspiration for my home decor comes from.

I hope you had a beautiful Earth Day!!!

    Hi Regina, Happy Earth Day to you also! I followed a link over to your blog–probably from Lisa–and I’ve enjoyed reading it! I’ve loved making the pillowcase bags, too–thank you for that!

    Your kitchen is gorgeous!

    Ocotillos are the most amazing plants, aren’t they? When I was a kid growing up in Phoenix, you could still see an occasional ocotillo fence. People used to use the branches as fence posts; they’d root and bloom the next spring. I’ve never forgotten that!

    Thanks again for your wonderful blog!
