Desert Delights

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words.  So there are three thousand. 

I do want to mention that the first image is of the Desert Mistletoe.  (Phoradendron Californicum)  It is a partial parasite.  What this means is that it does photosynthesize, but gets food and water from the host plant.  You can read more about it here.  It has the most wonderfully fragrant flowers. 

Perhaps soon I will feel like writing again.

Your craft is probably excellent.
My my lights you are certainly coming to be an excellent seer of the desert.

I'd like to participate in a dialogue group near JT so as to get my warm fuzzies eye to eye.
