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.

My Neighbor's Garden~Sunday Stills Challenge~042411
I was over talking to my neighbor last weekend, before hubby and I headed up to the Sierras. I hardly ever see her anymore as I leave for work early in the morning and so does she. She's lived next to us for nearly 30 years and she's a landscaper. Her yard always looks so clean and well-cared for (unlike ours!) Anyway, her sprinklers had just turned off and I noticed she was out weeding and pulling out flowers, so I asked her if I could take some photos before she decimated it too much! She said yes, so out I went with my camera. She has some beautiful roses (every rose bush I've planted in the last 35 years, I've KILLED!) and I am always so envious of hers! My parents had rows and rows of gorgeous rose bushes, but I can't ever get mine to grow! I'll have to stick with sunflowers, African daisies, and California poppies, I guess! Anyway, enjoy her flowers! Sunday Stills Challenge for April 24, 2011.
