Even a nature enthusiast can sometimes be surprised by the beauty of the desert in the spring time. These beautiful flowers were photographed in the New Mexico desert grasslands where springtime flowers are in bloom. This is an area where the environment is fragile and intense conservation is needed.
I am always surprised and awed that such a harsh environment can be teeming with plants and wildlife.
Our family has a unique tradition. I have always asked my children to send me flowers. Not physical flowers that get cut and eventually die on the kitchen counter but pictures of flowers when they encounter them in nature.
The beauty of this is I know they are enjoying what they love being in the outdoors, exploring it all and they have thought of me.
I wanted to share my recent gifts with all of you. So get out there and enjoy springtime where ever you are and send your Mom some flowers. 😉 Enjoy!
