We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

Bloomin' Desert

I love flowers so needless to say I was amazed at all the flowers that we saw in the desert.
From the amazingly incredible Joshua Tree blooms... the spiny Silver Cholla Cactus.

I made Dave stop driving so I could take a pictures of these beautiful pink flowers...
...on these Beavertail Pricklypear Cactus.

Even though the desert seems so desolate,

...the beauty was stunning...

...and all around us...

...more so in the shadow of the boulders.
The blooms of the Mojave Yucca were huge!
These chuparosa grow wild but we also saw them planted throughout Palm Springs.

There truly was beauty all around us in the bloomin' desert!
