Look closely… cautiously…9.28.20

Come closer, but don’t let the spines grab you. If you peer into the fleshy skin of this cactus you see the lush green underbelly and the baby spines fighting to burst forth into existence. I want to touch but think I may not…

Gentle Palm greetings 9.26.20

The flowing fronds of these majestic palms welcome me to the desert sunrise. They wave with such grace and are not static or stoic. I love the feeling of being among these giants… I feel loved.

3 stages of life 9.25.20

I look from left to right:

withered bloom

Newly forming buds

Full blooming flower

All performing the tasks assigned to them by Mother Nature, obediently.

Look at me 9.22.20

Welcome to Autumn and the beauty of this single bloom. I saw the colors and was reminded of a popsicle I loved as a kid… one flavor melted into the next… I couldn’t resist capturing it. Still one of my favorites!!! Enjoy!
