Walk On The Wild Side

 

Margie Anderson

Editor's Note - I do a brief column each month for page 1 of our paper. The cover photo this month is a field of beautiful wildflowers. I wanted to share with you the blessing, my favorite, this month.

Our Desert Blooms

However you envision their creator, the desert wildflowers in bloom are a masterpiece. There are so many places to savor this beauty -- from the Bartlett Lake area to Lake Havasu. Arizona is simply bursting with gorgeous colors, yes, even on the cactus. As our writers advise, this is definitely a reason to go for a drive now and enrich yourselves with the festival of the flowers.

March into April is just the start of wonderful things: the Arizona Game & Fish Expo, the ongoing Renaissance Festival, Day at the Docks in San Diego, and the Dragon Boat races on Tempe Town Lake.

It's also the month for the Irish, and it gives me a chance to wish you the goodness in this Irish Blessing, always my favorite -- for religious-or- not folks. It's for all of you.

Irish Blessing

May the road rise to meet you;

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

And rains fall soft upon your fields.

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

No April Fools

The last day for the fantastic Ren Faire is April 2.
