Peace and quite
Yesterday we left Litchfield Park, and came to our favorite spot. I have mentioned our favorite little spot several times in the last 3 years. It’s our little desert boondocking “home.” We last stayed here in December, and it’s nice to be back. The cactus are getting ready to bloom, and the ground is covered in tiny green plants.
Mostly, it’s great to be out of the city. The weekend show was not good for us, again, and we had to put up with a lot of noise in the evenings. So we are relishing the peace and quite, and solitude.
The photos in today’s post are for two of the photo challenge prompts I have been participating in. For the daily post at WordPress, the word of the week is orange.
The ocotillo are so close to just bursting out. The flowers on this one are more of an orange color, sometimes they are quite red.
These aren’t orange in color, but they are blossoms on an orange tree. Were we had the art show, there were a lot of orange trees. They are all blooming right now and the smell is so sweet, and unbelievable. I had forgotten how wonderful orange blossoms smell.
The other photo prompt is for the 52 snapshots of life, from The lazy pitbull. I haven’t done this one for a few weeks, but this weeks word is one I can totally do. Travel. Yep, that’s easy for me.
Last night Torrey and I went for our evening wander. She cracks me up, she remembers everywhere we’ve been, and knew right were I wanted to go, to the top of the hill.
Both dogs love the traveling as much as we do, and were happy to get out of town too. Travel for them is one big adventure, new smells, new people, new places.
Our time in the desert is nearing an end. We have one more show in the Phoenix area in 2 weeks, then we have to leave.
I’m pretty sad about all that, it seems like we just got here.
