The Colors Of The Mojave Desert

We went for a walk around our home and to our park- the desert is full of new spring colors-
In just a few short weeks the cacti will bloom their once a year blossoms

These are mostly bushes and trees:


I picked up some of the bean pods from this bush and I'm hoping to germinate them

My oldest monkey suggested I take this photo and said I should use it as a screen saver


There were lots of bees pollinating the flowers and I got some lucky close ups


I never tire of our blue skies


I love these little bushes but unfortunately they only bloom once a year for a short time

Exquisite! The flowers are incredible and we've been having blue skies like this lately too. You can almost taste it can't you?

It's funny how I make sure to take pictures of the flowers & plants when we travel, but I never take my camera with me on walks around my own home!

Maybe You'll Enjoy These Too...
