About time to head north and west

By Anne Leonard | May 8, 2018

I’m sitting in front of an open window listening to a mockingbird and enjoying a cool morning breeze. That said, I’m wondering if I have time to both work in the garden and run before it gets hot. Yes, summer is almost here. Proof? Last night at sunset I stepped outside to a pleasant breeze.…

Flowers and typos

By Anne Leonard | Apr 22, 2018

It rained hard last night, and today is so cool (by Houston standards anyway) that the heat came on mid morning. Not to gloat to all my friends north of here, but your loss (in the way of cold and snow and mud) are our gain. The jasmine and magnolias are in bloom and the…

Home . . . for a bit

By Anne Leonard | Apr 2, 2018

“How long are you in town?” I’ve been asked this quite a bit in recent days. And for good reason. I was home from the British Isles for all of three nights and two days before heading to New Orleans. But now I’m back in Houston for the better part of two months, with occasional…

On the way home

By Anne Leonard | Mar 24, 2018

“What was the purpose of your visit?” I was just asked clearing US Customs here in Dublin. The fact US Customs is here speaks to how US-friendly this country is. The only other country that does this that I know of is Canada. My answer, as it was landing first in London and then Ireland,…

Springtime in London

By Anne Leonard | Mar 18, 2018

They call this the Mini-Beast, as opposed to the Beast from the East that dumped a lot of snow on the British Isles a few weeks back. Nonetheless, we’ve gotten to experience a bit of snow and plenty of cold. This follows an absolutely perfect day on Friday. So here are contrasting photos of Kensington…

Spring here and there

By Anne Leonard | Mar 16, 2018

I’m on the road for much of March and therefore experiencing early spring in different parts of the world. Following my time in Arizona, where I made my way from Tucson to Flagstaff, with a weekend in Sedona, I drove to Albuquerque. The objective was to experience “winter” in New Mexico. I’d timed it right…

Back in the West

By Anne Leonard | Mar 3, 2018

I walked out the door of my hotel Friday morning to clear blue skies, crisp air and mountains in the distance. Ah, to be back in the West. Flew into Tucson, am attending a wedding in Sedona and then will drive to Albuquerque. I’ve missed the Southwest more than I knew. I’m going back to…

Surveying the damage

By Anne Leonard | Feb 24, 2018

I’ve been back in Houston for nearly three weeks and can count the days I’ve seen the sun on one hand. Okay, I can’t swear to that, but it has been as dark and dreary as London around here. And, thanks to last month’s ice storm, my garden is a disaster. Last week a water…
