Isabel's is one of those. Albuquerque had some early spring warm weather followed by some real cold days and a number of bushes and plants died. We convinced Isabel that we could remove the dead bushes and she let us do the job. We were looking for more to do since the local Habitat affiliate has current volunteer openings at the construction site.
We showed up ready and were greeted by a really nice yard and garden. Isabel takes great pride and care of her yard and it shows.
We were not the only one enjoying the day. A couple of quails (or doves?) were also enjoying the great surroundings.
With the help of Reid's truck, we made three loads to the dump.
Isabel is quite a gifted gardner. But she is so much more. She was Adam and Kelly's 5th grade teacher years ago.
And she has always been a writer. She has written hundreds of articles over the years and some in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. And recently she completed her masterpiece: Nonno's Monkey - An Italian Memoir
"This book was an amazing and hilarious story of the adventures of a young girl growing up in a too-funny-to-believe Italian family. It is a must read."
