Count Ramon: Sun into Virgo, Autumn is coming.

Count Ramon is eager to don his cape on the Autumnal Equinox.


The Sun enters Virgo August 22, 9:09pm (PDT) and begins an in-between season here in the south west desert.  Still very much summer but slight nips of cooler breeze can be imagined while the sun goes down a li’l sooner every day.

Poppies in Winter

The last week of January and the poppies are in their glory.  They bloom in front of the poinsettias that should be on the fade but are holding tight to  holiday mode.  How delightful to have so much colorful life right on the patio.  It’s messing with my dark heart.  Can’t let the clowns hear me talk like this.
