AND THEN . . . FOLLOWING THE NEW BUDS . . .

Along came some fine (as in texture) hail, soon followed by icy rain that seems determined to stick around. Notice how well it has made a lovely blanket "around" the tiny branches. Still, we must admit there is absolute beauty in it's applications! Just look at what it has added to the cactus and ENJOY!

BEAUTY IN TWISTED ROOTS

I was stunned to see the twisted roots of sage, whose colorful, dainty blooms I have long admired. I had always assumed something akin to that of a tree branch such as I am used to seeing, but when nature and mankind had cleared sage brush away, I knew I had found a treasure to share with others who, like I, had been kept in the dark as to the unseen beauty of the sage undergrowth. How many years can we guess as to the existence of this awe-inspiring beauty ?
