Returning Home

I took this picture yesterday afternoon on US 60 near Salome, AZ, while we were heading to our Arizona home. The saguaro cactus in the foreground and the desert mountain peak in the background makes for a beautiful sight. Click on the image to enlarge.

Synthetic Palms and Actual Snow

We crossed from California to our new home in Arizona today. When we drove through the San Bernardino area in the “inland empire,” we passed miles of snow capped mountains. Damsel caught this image of the mountains along with a couple of those ridiculous phony cell palms. This is another case of beauty being obscured by an eyesore or two (sort of like the Wind Turbines in Banning Pass). Click on the image to enlarge.

Gazania

I can’t take credit for growing this bright gazania since it was growing at the County Recycle Center. I took this photo yesterday when we were recycling our cans, glass and plastic. Click on the image to enlarge.

A Tiny Daffodil

When we got back to the California house, I found several of the flowers in bloom. This tiny yellow daffodil is one of several that always come out in late winter or early spring. The flower is only an inch across and the cup is about a half inch. Click on the image to enlarge.
