desert discernment

snapfish dating But how would/could someone weep at the site of a few puny flowers that you can barely discern? Another lesson from morning glory…I wish you could experience this, but even if you lived in Tucson, you would have to get up and out early before the sun shines their faces shut and they curl up into oblivion. And you would have to be in one of the deep shady washes in the foothills, where these rare creatures occasionally emerge with just the right conditions…and emerge they do…vining, spiraling, caressing, hugging all the support plants around them that they decorate like heavenly Christmas trees…

  1. site de rencontre suisse romande gratuit So surprising and special the color! Don’t see that every day in the desert! I have a very sweet, tiny yellow flower that vines around some buckwheat in the doggie yard – wish I knew what it is! That part of my yard is a jungle now – totally vibrantly out of control! What a monsoon!

  2. Amazing photos as always. I feel your joy in the desert’s abundance. Of course, as I say to my family elsewhere–but, Tucson is a lush desert! Thank you Gale for sharing what you see & experience.
