    My small rural town has a festival each August to raise funds for the volunteer fire department, and as part of festivities, they have a fireworks display from the town wharf. We live right near the wharf, so my favorite summer event is watching fireworks over the bay from my own deck. It’s like a private display–so fun!

    Like many others gardening is my pride. I live in AZ. The desert is challenging. I love to watch the vegetables and flowers come to life.
    I dare the desert and win.
