Joining Tom (The Back Roads Traveller) for TUESDAY TREASURES
and Jesh (St. Germains) for SEASONS
Tis the "season" for gorgeous flowers.
Speaking of flowers...
Years ago I was with my parents out around the desert region of our state (Washington) where we spotted some cacti much like this one growing out in the wild. My mom decided she wanted some to plant at their house so we drove down into the area and begin to dig some up. Soon a State Patrol car drove into the area and asked what we were doing.
They had seen us with shovel's digging in the area and apparently wanted to make sure we weren't burying any bodies. We explained that we were just digging up some cacti and they said, "No problem" and went on their way.
It was unnerving at the time but also funny as you just don't know what people out in the desert might be doing with shovels!
Finally last night produced some seasonal thunderclouds which as the sunset in the west reflected this gorgeous color onto the clouds east over our mountains. A true treasure indeed.
