Desert Jaunt

We have been threatening to go out for a day of enjoying the wildflowers and the desert for about a month now, but with my healing broken leg, and the fact that we both have had bad colds have forced us to remain home. It would have been more "convenient" for both of us to be sick at the same time, but I was sick for an entire week and then Tom caught my cold and that put us another week and a half into feeling like we couldn't make plans to do this. Yesterday, we decided to just go and get out for just an hour or so and get out of the house together for that long at least.

Since we live on the desert, it doesn't take that long to get out among the Saguaros, and we enjoyed it. Alas, we had missed whatever wildflowers were there earlier, but the cholla were certainly abundant and very plump at this time. Their soft fuzziness is extremely deceptive, I have come into contact with this soft fuzziness twice in my life and regretted it mightily both times!

Glad you were able to be out a bit even if it was for a short time. I enjoy your pictures. Your spring is very different from mine.
