Avoiding the Train Wreck


I've been trying to avoid the train wreck that is going on here in the good old U. S. of A.  It's pretty much impossible at the moment.  So rather than lamenting the lack of moral fiber of the current occupant of the white house, I thought I'd check out my photos from my last visit to the Desert Botanical Garden and sooth my outraged mind with the profound beauty of mother nature.


Just keeping up with the breaking news is exhausting.  I'll stop for just a moment and smell the flowers and listen to the birds.  I'm sure it will do wonders for my disposition.

We do have to take a step back and just enjoy the beauty that still exists around us.
Beautiful shots!

Great shots! Yes, sometimes we all just have to turn off the news and pay attention to our immediate surroundings.

It's almost a necessity to stop and get out into nature Sharon, you would go mad if you didn't and we wouldn't get to see the results of your excursion ☺
