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.

Mexican bird of paradise, yellow variety~Mellow Yellow Monday~072411





For those of you who visited my blog yesterday, that was the typical Mexican bird of paradise bush. But, there is also a yellow variety, which I have in my yard. I found a few of them here at the hotel, but they don't seem to be blooming as profusely as the multi-colored ones. I did snap a few photos of them yesterday morning, however, so here they are for Mellow Yellow Monday. Personally, I like the multi-colored ones better, because they have such vibrant colors, but the yellow ones are interesting, too!

These are pretty, but I am with you - I like the red and yellow ones more!

Funny, I didn't realize Scottsdale got such humidity.
