Of Spring and Christian Fiction News

Posted by Dianne Christner - Christian Fiction Author on April 7, 2016 at 1:15 PM

I've exciting Christian Fiction news,

but first...on a personal note...

Wahoo! The Desert's in bloom!

I feel guilty if you are still having cold weather, but I must confess it's beautiful in Phoenix these days. Usually I work out at a community center, but while the weather is so gorgeous, it's fun to hike the nature trails. I found Apache Trail Head near our new home. Last week I went twice, first with my friend Marsha and then with Jim.

Don't ask me the name of this cactus

because there are many similar varieties.

The trail meandered to the summit of a small mountain where we could see for many milies. Then it wound back down across the desert before it returned to the park entrance. Jim took this last photo as we crossed the desert area.

To celebrate Spring,

we've planted some cacti and trees in our courtyard.

The tree's a desert willow which will bloom pink,

a hummingbird favorite.

The tall building in the background is hubby's shop.

Some people find the desert bleak, but not me. I love it. The previous owners of our home planted rose trees in our entryway. I don't have a green thumb, but so far they're blooming. This is the view outside my office window.

YIkes! I'd appreciate your tips on rose gardening.

Now for my news....

Thank you readers for making this happen!
