On the morning walk

One of the trails we like to hike with the fuzzy dog is rife with Parry's Nolina. It is one of my very favorite desert plants. They are in various stages of blossoming, and it is a sight to behold. Photos don't really do them justice, but I try for you. These were taken about a week and a half ago. Recent photos coming soon...


Not only were they covered in bees, but I also spotted a lizard in one, who ducked out of sight when the camera emerged.




Photos of new paintings will be forthcoming...

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing! Oh, and going to your blog reminded me of a drawing I have to make that I thought of last night, so thank you for reminding me (not of desert flowers, but of a glowering octopus, but you made me think of ART!_
