The Blooming Desert
Last Saturday I spent the day with my friends Julie and Dave on a home tour that took us almost all the way to Carefree Arizona. Julie's mom was supposed to go on the tour but had to withdraw so Julie called to see if I wanted to go. I wasn't doing anything other that chores so I decided to join them and I'm glad I did.
The drive took us into the northern reaches of Scottsdale where there is still a lot of open desert and with the desert in full bloom right now, it was a beautiful thing to see.
We stopped for lunch at a place I'll reveal tomorrow and we found ourselves walking a few trails just to get some photos of all the beauty around us.
This last photo makes me think of that painting at the Heard Museum that I featured back on March 30th. It was called "Orchestrating a Blooming Desert" Just imagine that Saguaro cactus as the conductor.
