The last leg of Mum's 2011 Road Trip.
For those who don't know The Pope, here's the page on how we met.
It's kind of a long post, pour another scotch.
Last time I was at The Popes was April, still cold in Durango, just starting to warm up, but still a freeze or two at night. Patsy Pope, married to His Eminence for 32 years now, God Bless her little heart, has a green thumb like you wouldn't believe.
The Asparagus was just being planted in April, but got hit with a freeze one night, killed them all.
This time around when we pulled into The Popes, the smell just hit you, assaulted you as soon as you got out of the car.
