Pono and I went for a magical walk/run this morning in the wonderland of the desert in spring. Butter yellow desert dandelions and white, round pincushions carpeted the desert floor. Mixed into this bounty were desert delphinium, mohave asters, poppies, and a few orange mallow blossoms. It was hard to run much, because I had to keep stopping to look and look. Fabulous. I did take photos, but I only had my little tiny point-and-shoot. Those photos just weren't doing it justice. I promise to go back with the BIG camera, and try to get a more accurate picture of the dazzling array of flora, so that I can share it with you.
Morman Tea. It is also known as "Whorehouse Tea", "Cowboy Tea", and "Canyon Tea." I highly recommend you click on this link, to read a short and fascinating article about it.
The blossoms of the Joshua Tree in the backyard have given way to these green seed pods.
I am teaching a small drawing class, once every two weeks. Today was our second class. I am excited about what my students are doing. I have only taught one drawing workshop previously, and I find that I enjoy it more than I had expected to. (I was nervous!) It is important to step outside of one's comfort zone, every now and then.
I have more paintings drying, and I will attempt to get some photos. I just need for the wind to stop blowing, just for a few hours. Please, wind, will you just stop for more than two days in a row? Please?
I will try to catch up on my blog reading this week too, fellow bloggers! I hope you haven't felt neglected. I miss you, when I don't read about you. Thank you, everyone, for reading my blog. You know I couldn't keep writing, were it not for you, reading!!! I appreciate you!
