More Flowers

There is no such thing as too many flowers.  Last week, I had the opportunity to hike Amboy Crater with my friend B.  The desert marigold blanketed the sandiest, most barren-looking ground surrounding the crater.  Golden yellow everywhere!  There were a few verbena, but not as many as I have heard in past years.  Also had my first glimpse of the Desert Lily.   I saw the Desert Five Spot, too, and I know I took a photo of it, but I can't seem to find the photo.  ???  It has been lost in the myriad of image files on my computer.  (Time for a little computer house cleaning, I'd say.)

Today was another cold and windy day.  The desert dandelion are shut tight against the cold.  I feel exactly the same way.  We await the return of warm sun.

Last week, when my out-of-town guests were here, one of the cacti in my yard decided to put on her party dress.  I think I went out every ten minutes to look at it and drink in the sweet scent.

I leave you with a photo of another recent painting.  This one I called "Laughter", and it measures 48 x 36 inches.  It may not be quite finished, but it will sit while I look and ponder, until I know for certain.
