Velvet Mesquite


Velvet Mesquite

Here in the desert of Arizona, a garden is something that I just don't have much luck with. There is, however, an unbelievable amount of natural beauty and Springtime is when everything blooms. Yes, even in the desert. The mesquite trees are everywhere on our property and their blooms are really spectacular for such a rugged tree. I know I just made it under the wire but I do work best under pressure. So here is my LO. Items used are listed in the EXIF properties. Enjoy and TFL!

Journaling reads "Moments like this...remind me of why I love the southwest desert. With little water this tree blooms every Spring with brilliant yellow plumes as if to show us that even under the harshest of environments there is beauty. One just needs to be patient and look closely. Prosopis velutina Velvet Mesquite"
