It’s not easy being purple
you don’t blend in with
so many other ordinary things
And people tend to stare at you
‘Cause you stand out
Like a sore thumb
next to yellow blossoms.

Friday with Friends & Molino Basin to Prison Camp

Edi Moore guided us to a couple of Macdougal’s Nipple Cactus in Molino Basin last Monday while hiking the area. These two are only about 4″ high and somewhat concealed by other plants and desert debris. This sighting was my first.

The blossoms had not yet opened on one plant, but should soon follow the other with beautiful greenish-yellow blossoms.

The Yellow-Tree Road


diminutive fires;


on green sticks (Palo Verde);


the desert a glow;


roads in a sea of yellow;


sweet winds;


desert naturalness;


the road less traveled.
