An Intimate Portrait of the Desert, Part I

I'm pleased to present a three-part series of up-close and personal photos of desert plants found in my yard in Palm Springs. It is my hope that these photos will stimulate your mind and convey the unique beauty of desert plantlife.
Enjoy!




Stay tuned...more photos on Thursday and Friday~

Ahh......so different than we have here in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks for sharing. Reminds me of growing up in Idaho. We had an entire garden dedicated to cacus, rocks, desert plans.

Great photos Rick. I especially like the cactus plants. I keep one on my desk at work.

I find the desert plants so fascinating, But that's probably because I've lived in the mid-west all my life.

Love the photographs! Unfortunately, my cacti need to be brought inside when the weather gets cold. They just don't like Illinois for some reason. :-) Although my mother's prickly pear cactus has survived the outdoors year-round with annual blooms.

Oh yes, nice stuff. Desert ain't as vapid or lifeless as we may believe huh?

Queen of Dysfunction said...

Wow! I love the photos! I think a lot of people have an idea that the desert is some dead and dry place, so it's nice to see photos of the live stuff. These and the ones in your top post are gorgeous!
