One look at a desert, all those miles and miles of kitty litter, could make one think there’s nothing out there but, well, miles and miles of kitty litter. If one gets out of the car to take a closer look, however, one sees the delicate beauty of the flowers that insist on blooming regardless of the arid conditions that seem to defy allowing conditions that would facilitate those gorgeous colors. Sometimes it means getting up close and personal to a plant, and other times, the plants spout blooms that shout out “Come look at me!”
Springtime will bring more flowers but here’s some of what’s blooming out in the southern Arizona desert right now, along with a couple of photos of cactus that are all budded up, just waiting for the perfect day to pop open in bloom!
Amazing what “hides” out there in the desert, isn’t it?
See you on the road somewhere! Or if you see my vehicle parked alongside the road and I’m not in it, stop and park, too – I’d love it if you’d join me out there looking at the colorful desert flowers!
