Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

Coachella Valley table grapes~~Think Green Thursday






















If you have recently bought table grapes, they might have come from the Coachella Valley. Several of my parents have brought me some already. The Coachella Valley is a large agricultural center of California, second only to the great Central Valley. Right now table grapes are being harvested. I took some photos of one vineyard last month when I drove out toward Mecca. Aren't the grapes beautiful? For me, it is very peaceful and restful to see them. Think Green Thursday for June 11, 2009.

Those grapes are beautiful! It's sweet that your parents send you treats. I'd rather have grapes than an apple anyday! You have a lovely blog.

Thunderstorms rolled over my house this morning at 4:00 AM and thunder and lightening woke me up. By the time I was up and drinking my first coffee, the rain was hitting my skylight pretty hard. It sounded like some kind of war going on. The noise is great.

It must be nice to have that many grape vines in your area. It means it is something most kids like to eat and I would guess some of thee will be gone when you leave. I know I would have tried some, especially if they are ripe.
