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.

Roses in the Park~Nature Notes~120811 and Creative Exchange






I love going to our local civic center park and taking photos of the roses there.  They are so colorful and bright!  ...sigh...I just wish I could grow my own, but, for the last 40 years, I've killed every rose bush I've ever planted!  So, I go down to the park and admire theirs!  Aren't they beautiful?  Their petals are so delicate!  I actually used my tripod to take these.  I enjoy visiting the roses at the park and I've had a couple of early morning walkers stop by and chat with me.  It's a great way for me to begin the day!  Nature Notes for December 8, 2011.  I hope their color and vibrance bring a smile to you today!  :-)  To visit Nature Notes, please go to:  http://ramblingwoods.com/  To visit Creative Exchange, please go to:  http://www.the-creative-exchange.com/

Roses are spectacular. I suppose they bloom all year where you live.

Here in Indiana, with snow on the ground, your roses did indeed bring a smile to my face.

I can't grow them either.
