Pictures : I love the strength of these flowers that can grow in nothing but old dried sand.

I have posted a shot of this one before, but I crop in a bit and this time no crop, just resized for the web. I wanted to show the environment surrounding it. It amazes me such a beauty grew where it did, in the hot sandy area.

These flowers are the same, tough as can be. I enjoyed these so much this season. They were everywhere in the desert, all they needed was water, and we had a pretty good monsoon this year.

Weather : We got a beauty today! About 60 °F and no wind. The door is open, and I am enjoying the weather.

Have a great day, Folks
