Out on the morning walk with Mr. Pono today, I was excited to see little bits of green popping up all over. Pono took off, huffing after some smell or another and came back with a paw full of cholla spines. As I bent over to flick them off with a stick, I saw this:
I may be mistaken, but I am pretty sure these are the leaves of the desert hyacinth!!! A beautiful, dainty little desert blossom. (yeah, I know that another common name for them is "Bluedicks." I know! They are much too lovely for me to call them that.)I cannot wait until things start blooming. With all of the rain we have had, it should be a magical spring. Don't worry, I will do my best to get tons and tons of photos for you.
More paintings are in progress. I hope you all had a spectacular day!
