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.

Flower pics from my garden

Back in January, I planted sunflower, sweet pea, and a desert mixture of seeds along the dog run fence in our back yard.  After lots of attention, they are now blooming.  YEAH!  I do need to go out and do some weeding, however, as the pesky weeds are everywhere.  I've tried to grab out the larger ones, but I need to spend some serious time in the back yard today.  Fortunately, it will be in the mid 80's instead of the mid 90's here today.

I've had a horrible cold now for 10 days.  I got 2 days off work (urgent care) and I lost ALL of last weekend due to this illness, which has now become full blown bronchitis.  I drove up to visit my horses yesterday and I only lasted 1 hour up there.  I usually stay for 2 to 3 hours, groom all 5 of them, and let at least 2 of them into the arena.  Nope.  Didn't happen.  I was totally exhausted after just giving them water, pellets, and psyllium.  I'm still not back to full strength yet, and it has been 10 days.  Fortunately, there are only 4 days of school this week.  WHOOPIE!   :-)

Those are actually sweet peas. And,yes, they are in the pea family. When done blooming, they have little pea seed sacks, which I have to remove or they will all die out. They have a marvelous, sweet aroma! Thanks for stopping by!
