In my innocence,
I dallied at the border
between bloom and blight.

  20. MMT, I like your verse. 🙂 Perhaps because I like to dally. Between bloom and blight is much better than being between a rock and a hard place.

    The flowers are pretty too, but look rather lonesome. I couldn’t figure out what kind they are.

  21. Great shot.

    Have a fabulous week.

  24. I dally all the time…once work is done for the day that is about all I can do. Love your little yellow plant in its desert setting. Beautiful and so different from Virginia. Hope you have a great week…warm without any rain!

  25. have time to visit my other entry. I’ll appreciate it. Thanks.

  31. Nice and delicate.

  32. Beautiful!

  33. Lovely blooms in the desert. Funny but I usually think of cacti not little blooms such as these.

  34. Your posts always brighten my day !!

  35. Loved that- perfect with the picture! Happy Spring!

  36. dallying is such an exquisite word… as if a freedom which had no borders… thought provoking.. the desert can only magnify the color of blooms ….
