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.

African daisies~Mellow Yellow Monday 021411

My African daisies are now in full bloom. I planted these in the front yard, out by the sidewalk. I had to put wire over them as somebody's dog likes to stop and...er..."deposit" some items and tear them up! Don't people recognize the leash law? (...shaking head...) So, that explains the wire over them. After being gone one weekend, we arrived home to find half of the daisies thrown about in chaos. I mean, how frustrating is that??? I NEVER allow my dogs to run alone, without a leash. And, the sad part is that our street is only one block off a very busy main street here in town! I don't think I'll even plant them here next year, so I'll need to figure out where to plant them. They do reseed themselves, so some may grow, but I always collect the seeds, keep them, and then reseed the following year. Mellow Yellow Monday for February 14, 2011. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Very cheerful! Can't wait for spring here-- we've had two horrid weeks of winter storms-- and I found daffodil stalks yesterday so not long to wait!

I put wire over my garden occasionally even in the country-- critters sometimes have it in for an innocent plant for no good reason.

Maybe you should plant some small cacti there...the kind with little hairy needles! I bet this pooch will find a new spot to destroy! But...for now...your yellow daisies are divine!
