Beauty in the Beast

“I’d like to have a herb garden, but I don’t want the rabbits to feast like beasts.”

I planted a cactus in the middle of my herb planter, so rabbits couldn’t kick-back and comfortably munch on my herbs, and it sure seems to have done the job!

Looking for the beauty in the beast –

it’s transformational.

Smell of Rain

Day 5 Nature Photo Challenge: “Smell of Rain”

Last night I attended Care Fund ‘s Desert Sky Gala,

timed so the guests could witness the desert sunset.

As the sun went down,

the blooming creosote bushes lit up with hues of pink,

drawing my attention to them,

just like how their smell draws my attention when it rains.
