To the Creek

Here are some of the landscapes, plants and things that caught my eye several days ago on a quick walk to the creek and back. This area is receiving a lot of rain today. If I do go for a walk after the rain, I won't visit the creek because of the possibility of flash flood.




Hooker's Evening Primrose




Lion face in tree


clustervine




Desert Senna, Pea family

Rain - I wish we could have some too. Delightful photos. We get the barrel cacti here too. The flowers are very pretty.

All the plants are looking so good with all this extra rain.
The storm this morning was really something.
Were I live right across from the Ventana the rain sometimes pass over us. But not today. The Ventana Falls are really full today.
The Barrel Cactus is lovely.

cheers, parsnip

That primrose. Those steps. The cactus! We saw the flooding in Phoenix on the news. Rain here, too - ongoing! They say snow by the end of the week. Can it be that time?

Algunos paisajes son parecidos a los de Béjar, subiendo para el monte. Curiosa cara en el árbol!!
Un beso,
