Brrr… says the Burro

Strong. Sturdy. Tolerant of heat.

Those are the phrases and mental pictures that form when I hear “burro”.  I can easily see them pulling a cart or furnishing a ride across arid portions of  Mexico or the US Southwest.

It was a pleasant surprise to find one in my neighborhood, the day I walked around viewing the Christmas decorations.

This is precious. And doubly so as the poinsettias (these are nice artificial) are native to Mexico. Remember our friends South of the Border this season as you tend your poinsettia plants — indoors in the Midwest.

I'm taking these South!

I’m taking these South!

Looking for a winter story with snow and evergreens?

Starr Tree Farm has both. Available at Amazon and Barnes & Nobel.
