> cypress in the desert April 2009



Joshua Tree National Forest

March 30, 2009

these lovely little flowers were in proverbial carpets all over the desert in Joshua Tree National Park. We set off for Joshua Tree late in the morning, and would both have been happy to stay there for days [although i would have worried about scorpions in my tent there, i think]. such a beautiful place. and a little alarming too, frankly. the desert is a place where the fragility of life is apparent.

there were carpets of these lovely little flowers all over the desert. they were about 3" high.
