November Creek

These pictures are from a walk to the creek last week when the weather was still unseasonably warm. It has cooled off since then and feels more like autumn now.

The saguaro skeleton looks could be an angel
And the "reflection of sky and trees" is outstanding. Such a lovely photo.

A walk to the creek clears the mind and especially a nightmare.

What wonderful desert photos, Diane. I like the flowers and the red-tipped leaf. That saguaro skeleton is fabulous. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Hey Diane, I am visiting you after a year or more and yes I truly missed the warm colours which remind me of life bursting out from every tip of the leaf.
It is good to be with you here on your journey towards life giving environment and beyond :)
Love Naqvee

We're still waiting for autumn but it's pouring rain right now, so maybe it's finally on its way.
