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

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!

A flower by any other name? 9.14.20

Believe it or not this beautiful blossom is not growing on a tropical island nor in a botanical garden. This is one I found growing in the desert in Southern California! Can anyone identify it for me?

Most would not take a second glance at this insignificant bloom lying in the rocks, but I am not as discerning as most perhaps… I spot a little color among the stones and my eye goes, ooooh… look at that! Am I a wierdo? I think not!
