Winter is coming to an end and spring is almost here, and it's time to get you all updated on the CRMPI winter happenings. 

Some beautiful snow fell from the sky here this season.
Then it fell again...(and again)...and we've stayed busy.
Improving the fort, planning for a great 2016,
and eating fresh food from Pheonix's bounty!

Winter Wonders

The weather outside for a shoveling intern was frightful...
...but the fresh kumquats in our bellies have been so very delightful!
Intern Tegan -  Takin' care of business!!

The Pheonix cats slept like winter princes' in the pepper plant pots...

...but we put them to work too, as our resident yoga instructors. 
We welcomed a few new darlings these last few months.
If this photo doesn't make you want to cuddle puddle something, nothing will.
((Great photo provided by the great Kirk Rasmussen!))
The most wonderful Callie bought a bunch a big books and left to study in Boulder...
..and passed the CRMPI management torch to Sarah.

Mana got some TLC

A enlarged deck built by
volunteer Grant, painted bright and
Mediterranean cheerful!
Volunteer Mark did an outstanding job replacing the main post in Mana and doing some beautiful detail work across the center beam.

Jerome hit the warm road this winter

In January he headed on down to Litibu Mexico. February took him to Texas and Miami, and in March he found himself in California!
