Desert Days

I have LOTS of catching up to do. We've been up north for 2 weeks now and I'm still starting with a blog about before we left! Whoops!

After growing up in the north I always thought the desert was a dry and boring place. Little did I know that there really are several plants that flower and do well in the dry climate.

Here is our pretty choya cactus with it's spring flowers. We hear that our prickly pears are ready to bloom. Hopefully we make it home before the flowers are done! Here is our newest plant - a lantana. This was 1 part of my mother's day present! It is so pretty! I can't wait for it to get HUGE and have LOTS of flowers!

Here is J having fun at the library on a day too hot to be outside!

We had an "end of the year" recital for the music classes at the mission and J really LOVED to clap at the end of each piece!
Que rico! A Sunday afternoon nap!

A flower for Mother's Day!

  1. I am amazed by the beauty of the cactus flowers. Your choya flower is amazing. We also have lantana -- they grow great in the desert. Your pictures of Minnesota are great too. Jaden sure is growing up fast.
