Here we have the desert brown, plant growth is harsh to touch, and we have the desert critters, some of which can prove to be a real hazard to a walk. Your poetic write is a delightful read.....and the picture absolutely breath-taking......KayD

Careful not to crush anything and try to side step things in my way! So you guys went to Mammoth Cave huh! I loved it over there! We went through all the caves and it totally boggles the mind things the Lord can create out of stone! Loved the pic you took of the flowers! Hugs ~ Chee

But to look at some of the trees the green leaves (these are tiny mesquite leaves) did not change to a brown and have hung onto the branches although they are dried. Hopefully as the green comes back and the desert wildflowers bloom, I can remember to take pictures for the memory book. Liked your perception in these words:
You know, I think of you as living in the desert where so many travelers followed the leadings of Jesus Christ, to find the Promised Land. Could you possibly put yourself in their 'shoes', and walk with them ?? Yes, the desert is a barren land most of the time, but so many people in the past, and even now, make it their home, and are so proud of it !! I know, from reading and from pictures, that the desert has its colossal growth time, in which it delights like no other place in the world!!
And having lived in the desert southwest for many years of my life, I do so enjoy its majesty.....Thanks for all your good words....my dearest friend.......KayD

I always try to even rescue a moth or 2 trapped inside during the warmer months and set back free, life slowly changes us it seems! Love the poem, God Bless You & all the little flowers!
Chee Chee Martin wrote:My bad! I misread what you wrote about taking a picture of the flower! I think I need new glasses! Hee-hee! No sweetie, I don't take pictures! Dale does from time to time. I have boxes of photographs and wonder what will happen to them once I'm gone. I took the time to write on the back of each one the year and who's in it in case some member of my family is going through them after I pass away and say, "Who the heck is that?" Now they'll know! Anyway, I loved your poem! You keep taking pics sweetie and be sure to share them with the rest of us! Hugs ~ Chee
