Blixseth Park Plants

The last of my shots from our spring trip to Palm Springs shows some plants in the desert Blixseth Park.
This post is for Scenic Sunday.

The official toll for the wildfire is 347 homes destroyed and one dead. The fire is 15% contained.

  2. These photos show nature when it is peaceful with pretty wild flowers but nature can be savage too. I’m so sorry for what is happening in Colorado and hope that the weather will change and stop the fires.

  3. Desert flowers are some of the most amazing flowers in the world, to me. So delicate yet so strong!

    I heard about the person found dead in one of the burned out homes. I ache for that person, their family, friends and coworkers ... that combined with the devastating loss of homes and livelihoods ... I'm full of tears.

  4. These wonderful captures must look even better to you under the present conditions in Colorado!! Heartbreaking to hear of so many homes destroyed. Sorry to hear of the death, thankfully there have been no more, but for that family it is certainly too many. Take care, stay safe.
