Ruellia peninsularis ﬂower, old and out of shape.
South of Picacho Peak is the Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch. I stopped for a few minutes on my way home from Tucson and this guy came over to check up on me.
Umbrella grass blooms with odd little ﬂowers.
A single Euryops ﬂower remains on the shrub.
Red rose with a dark bokeh background.
Single Coreopsis ﬂower.
Our desert trees may be kind of spindly and short, but they sure do put on a show in the spring!
Layers of clouds near sunset, with a storm moving in.
Another beautiful ﬂower from the garden at Shephard of the Valley Church.
From my second favorite secret garden, located at Shepherd of the Hills United Church of Christ. A beautifully landscaped courtyard is cut off from the world by hedges and trees. So peaceful.
