The desert called and away we went. Usually I have time to post about an up coming trip but this time things got away from me and as we were headed out of town I realized my neglect. The trip to the desert was beautiful it was green and blooming, the Mojave is not full of lots of cactus but has many tiny flowers that create blankets of colors over the desert floor, purples, whites, and yellows. It is amazing to walk up to the color and realize it is a collection of eraser tip size flowers-some smaller. The Yucca plants and Joshua trees were in bloom and gorgeous. For as huge and beautiful their flowers they give off no fragrance. We had a perfect camping spot and for once the wind was not blowing and it was peaceful and calm. Spending 3 full days in the desert away from people, traffic, tv, the internet, and work is a great re-generator. I am rested and ready to work in my garden and catch up on all I've missed well I've been away.
