Enjoys the air it breathes!

March 2015 Flowers In Our Desert Yard — Images by kenne (See on Flickr)


This blog frequently posts images of wildflowers in the Sonoran desert,
to the neglect of domestic flowers in our yard.
So, it’s their turn to be shared.
What’s not to love about flowers, domestic or wild?

Spring flowers abound

Opening in the sunlight

Keeping us spellbound.

I declare

Cue the sun
I declare life.

Cue the flowers
I declare spring.

Cue the children
I declare love.

I declare,
Isn’t it beautiful?

I declare!
I declare!

The weather here is windy, balmy, sometimes wet.
Desert springtime, with flowers popping up all over the place,
trees leafing out, streams gushing down from the mountains.
Great time of year for hiking, camping, exploring, sleeping under the new moon and the old stars.
At dawn and at evening we hear the coyotes howling with excitement – mating season.
And lots of fresh rabbit meat hopping about to feed the young ones with.

But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:

And now from having ridden out desire

They lie closed over in the wind and cling

Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.

— Robert Frost, “Blue-Butterfly Day”

Flowers have spoken to me
more than I can tell in written words.
They are the hieroglyphics of angels,
loved by all men for the beauty of the character,
though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.

— Lydia M. Child
