After this past summer's extreme monsoon season in the area we like to camp during the winter, the desert is more green and lush (if a desert can be lush?) than we've ever experienced!!
The ocotillo are vibrant green, the saguaro healthy, vital and strong, and the brittle bush and globe mallow are blooming in bright yellow and orange waves all across the desert floor!!
We even came across some blooming datura with its creamy white and purple petals, smelling oh so sweet...and lots of birds and lizards too!!!
The enjoyment of this fine "winter" weather does validate the desire to continue our snowbird adventures ...and definitely keep chasing birds!!
