Here in the Tucson desert
Moving on midday.

Sabino Canyon Cottonwood: Diversity Near The Creek   Leave a comment

Cottonwood Tree In Fall Color -blogSabino Canyon Cottonwood: Diversity Near The Creek — Image by kenne

it’s leaf-peeper time
for desert trees near water
turning sun colors

light up cloudy days
early signs of spring colors
buds on brittlebush

thinking of poems
I walk collecting images
I may never use

nature’s distinction
a wild garden made of time
rhythm of cycles

the trails are narrow
filled with echoes of past steps
now sounds of silence

floating gray clouds pass
still, light shines through the shadows
as twisting leaves fall

 two young girls passed by
visitors from the cold north
loose-breasted sun nymphs

time has moved by fast
in need of a time machine
bygone days are gone

Because of a lack of winter rains,
brittlebush plants are very dry and few
are blooming this spring.

Even with last week’s good rainfall, most brittlebush plants are not blooming as would normally be this time of year. We have had a very dry winter, even so, these two plants were located near one another.

The Sonoran Desert Is Turning Into A Sea Of Floral Yellow   3 comments

Brittlebush Blooming In The Sonoran Desert — Images by kenne

With good rains earlier this month the Sonoran desert is beginning to explode into a colorful display that changes the brown desert landscape into a sea of floral yellow. With a little rain, this common desert scrub will begin to bloom and will do so almost year round. I last posted brittlebush blossom images two months ago.
