Succulents 1,2,3 and 4

Today’s photos turned out to be taken in my front yard and my next door neighbors.  Being desert dwellers we both have a few cactus of different varieties… they are great for water conservation, since they need only a drip system to quench their thirst.  Did I mention my water bill us always under $10 a month?  For the whole house and the garden drip system.  In the desert, that is saying a lot!

Here are a few of my friends… up close and personal, you might say.  Don’t stand too close, you may get pricked 😉

same cloudy day

 

these were taken on the same day as tangerine clouds with my little iPhone4… I am a cloud-a-holic, in case you haven’t noticed on my blog.  80% of my photos are taken of clouds and I live in Palm Desert where it doesn’t rain much all year long.  However, Mother Nature provides me with the most incredible sunrises and sunsets as the clouds blow in and out of the desert, without weeping on our arid desert floor.ImageImageImageng ImageImage
