The Desert’s Amazing Life Forms – Part Four – Flora


 After a bit of desert crawlers and things that go “sting” in the night, we enter the world of wildflowers. Our friend Michael who has lived in this southern New Mexico desert landscape for eighteen years told us he had never seen so many flowers, a result of lots of rain. They were everywhere, dotting the landscape from white poppies to tiny daisies, and many flowers new to my eyes. They sent forth their melodious scents, attracting insects and brightening our hearts with profound gratitude.

Too many photos to scroll (27, I think) so I put them into a slideshow.

      Hi Alison, fortunate to have been in the desert when so many flowers erupted. Am so much enjoying following your travels and watching two beautiful flowers dance the dance of emptiness and fullness, including dealing with a wet computer and stolen bag! And Life ever reminds us – LET GO, LET GO!
