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.

Winter crops~Nature Notes~102711




I left home early a couple of days ago and I had time to drive out by the fields near my school to investigate what was planted there.  I believe this is broccoli.  At least, that's what the large growers plant this time of year.  I caught the fields just as they were watering them in the morning. Aren't the fields pretty?  I love morning light and I'm glad I was able to see them before my work day started.  Nature Notes for October 27, 2011.  To visit Nature Notes, please go to:  http://ramblingwoods.com/

Love the look of the wonderful rows of green against that black looking soil. Hope it is broccoli.

If someone is looking to get some calcium, this is the place to get it! I've never seen a broccoli crop before, interesting!

All the green broccoli "dots" make a lovely pattern.

For those of us settling in for a long, white winter, this is like a glimpse of heaven.
