Colors of the desert

Colors? In the desert? Yes, the desert has lots of brown and tan, sand, rocks, scrub brush and cactus, but spring comes to the desert just like it comes everywhere, with color. Probably because the desert usually looks pretty monochromatic, I’ve become much more aware of its flowers, from the smallest to the most startling. I wanted to share some desert color with you. We’re sitting in a pretty good internet service area, so now’s as good a time as ever. Do I know the names of the flowers? Probably not, so if you do, please enlighten me!

This one isn’t bright and cheery like some of the others, but a new hue of green is a definite sign of growth, even in cacti!

Now this last picture. Well, the only “desert” thing about it is the long dry spell since we’ve seen that place in Kansas, our daughter’s house and her beautiful roses. Soon, though, we’ll see them for ourselves!
