Road Runner BLM, Quartzsite, Arizona
A nice start to the morning, not too chilly but I don't recall the sun shining. It may have but I don't remember it. I do know it was cloudy for the day, not a dreary cloud cover just over cast. Riley and I headed off for a walk this morning after we packed away all of the outside stuff in preparation for our move tomorrow.

We headed into town for a garbage run, some diesel and a quick stop at Kuehn Street for a quick peek. Back home I gave the Dogsled a rapid vacuum to remove the first layer of Yuma hair and a bit of dust. I'll give it a better going over as the winter passes and into the spring. Yuma's hair gets everywhere and is tough to get out of the carpet.
Riley opted to stay home but we Deb's, with Tom as chauffeur, headed off in search of some desert blooms. We hung a right at Plomosa BLM and headed off toward Bouse. Some great views and while I didn't take a lot of pics, the sights were well worth the drive. I would even consider staying in the area in the future. Cell service went the rounds with Verizon losing out, T-Mobile and AT & T seemed to pick up the most bars.
We found some beautiful purple and white bunches of blooms on the roadside.
We found some blooms as we headed toward Parker. Not masses and masses but enough to see how pretty the area will be in a bloom. It would be wonderful see such a thing.
Back home, I had a very late lunch, Riley and I cleaned up and I'm uploading and editing photos for the blog. A bit later I'll call my dad for a quick chat. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Between my shaking and the wind blowing we managed to cut off the very edges of the bloom.
Until next time...
Take care, stay safe,
I have always wanted to see the desert in full bloom. They tell me it is beautiful.ReplyDelete
I would love to see it too. These few flowers are beautiful and change the landscape greatly.Delete
Those blooms look very familiar! :)ReplyDelete
They are pretty.Delete
Glad you joined us in search of blooms and I was really glad when we found them...😊 It was a nice ride.ReplyDelete
Thanks for inviting me, I had a great time.Delete
Gorgeous blooms. Lint rollers work perfect for getting dog hair out of carpets and upholstery.ReplyDelete
Yes they usually do but Yuma’s hair is immune to them. Lol. Short, wiry and kind of stiff it is tough to get out of the carpet in the Dogsled. It seems to hook in there somehow.Delete
Very pretty. We always leave before they get to that point so it is nice seeing them vicariously through you!ReplyDelete
I will continue to try to do that for you.Delete
The desert is so pretty when it comes into bloom.ReplyDelete
It is very pretty indeed.Delete
Even here in Wellton the empty desert areas in town are starting to bloom.ReplyDelete
Rain is Mother Nature’s drink of choice for a reason.Delete
