a brutal emergence

saturated bloom

brutal blooming

yellow + blue

lake of shining waters

i was shocked to find such loveliness in our barren land.
the smells were spicy and harsh.
blossoms breaking out of their sheaths
as if to spite the desert.

Thanks, Bethany. The Palo Verde's are in bloom. It's like a sea of yellow on Val Vista.

Nope, I couldn't sleep either, C! I kept thinking about what a lovely evening we'd had! We must do it again soon!
