Peace and quite
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.
Torrey is adorable. How smart is she, knowing exactly where to lead you because she knows you love it there, and she loves it there too! I hear ya about getting away from THE NOISE. Not only the noise, but the peace-less feel of too much city life. I love where I work, I need to (or at least I used to need to) be near a big city. These days, coming home to quiet is what I crave, and for my husband as well. I long to hear the birds again, and this weekend with much milder weather, we heard their song.
I bet that the silence in the desert has a different feel; an almost tinny sound of pure air mixed with smells and textures….so gorgeous Mary – and after this, where is your next stop?
The blossoms are pretty, I wish I could smell their scent.. I always love seeing your cute pups.. Have a happy day!
Wow wish we could smell the orange blossom. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly
Such pretty flowers, makes us feel warm looking at them!
Gorgeous picture of Torrey – those pups are really livin’ the life right along with you two. I’m sorry to hear the show wasn’t good and that you have to leave the desert soon. What’s your next destination? Any chance you’ll be able to find someplace almost as quiet and out of the way to boondock? Hope the next show is a better one!
sorry the show was not a good one for you. glad you’re soaking in some peace and beauty, though!
The ocotillo blossoms must be gorgeous when they bloom! Do the orange blossoms smell as wonderful as I imagine? Sorry sales were not good and that noise made staying there even worse!
We’re going to be in the desert in a couple of weeks and I’m hoping to see lots of blooms! Bummer that the show wasn’t good! Great photos, as always. :)
Love those photos, especially the ocotillo. Are you heading to a different part of the country now? Nowhere too cold, I hope!
Love the orange blossoms! I love going down south this time of year as the smell is absolute heaven.
Where will you go after you leave the desert?
Our son has an orange tree in his yard. I picked a couple of ripe oranges last week and just stood there inhaling the wonderful scent. I couldn’t get enough of it. Enjoy that solitude while you can :-)
Sorry to hear your time in the city didn’t go well, but glad you are now out of there, and back to a place you love. I love the photos of your RV in the middle of nowhere like that, with Torrey looking back at it. Enjoy!
Aren’t the dogs a hoot! If I walk the Vizsla first, when I take the beagle out, he will retrace the exact same places. He’s always very particular where he wants to go.
I’m glad that you’re back in a favorite spot. My dogs are the same – they remember each site that we go to so well… I love your photos today – the orange and the traveling Torrey!
Do you mean peace and quiet? Love you photos!!
Perhaps the next show will be better…:)JP
