  • Palabras Pintorescas - Shy boy becomes kids’ big brother

    Hopefully the housefly invasion here will soon peak. The window on my back porch is covered, crawling with black flies. I have a remedy that seems to work. I put a few drops of dish soap in a shiny pan, fill it with water and put it on the windowsill. This contraption attracts the flies that  die quickly when they fly into it. Someone said the soap blocks their air vents. Our resident magpies love this dead fly collection when I dispose of it.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - It’s November; where did summer go?

    Here it is, one of the first days of November, and I’m wondering where summer went. I note one last brilliant gold aspen tree has held on to its leaves as I write this, an aspen that is high up in the mountain, protected by the strong winds that claimed its neighboring trees. Our scientists say all of our aspens are directly related to one root. The show they produced this year was spectacular here. Their genes must be strong!
