A Disappearing Act
Did Karine fall off the face of the planet? Where did she go?
I am sure you are all wondering by now. I am sorry to disappear without notice, my dear blog readers. You know I do love you. As it turns out, my mother took a turn for the worse a little over two weeks ago. I wasn't going to travel to Denver right away, but things started looking really desperate on the night of Easter Sunday, so I did end up getting on a plane about a week and a half ago. I am back in Denver once again. I am beginning to feel like I live at the hospital. It has been a stressful couple of weeks, but I am delighted to announce that things seem to be improving with my Mom, and finally I feel more comfortable catching up with my blog. Please forgive me.
I want you to know, my fellow bloggers, I have been reading your blogs. Even though I have not commented, your writing and photos have been a much needed escape for me during these past weeks! Thank you.
I have some photos of the Mohave Yucca, which I took before I left Joshua Tree. This yucca is related to the Joshua Tree, but is shorter and more bush-like. I hate to say it, but I think I like these blossoms EVEN MORE than the blossom of the Joshua Tree. The buds start out this amazing red-violet color, and then they bloom in a delicate white. DIVINE! You can make your own mind up, I am sure.
