  1. Lovely take on the prompt !!!

  2. Will visit this place one day. This dream will come true, by hook or by crock §:-)

    Great shot!

    Happy SSS2.

  3. The desert area looks a bit of sepia sand, not colorless but dry. The red flowers atop the hill overpower the scene and become the new focal point for both human and hummingbird alike. Nice vista!

  4. Lovely, colorful shadow shot for the day and a great shot of the desert as well! Have a great weekend!

  5. Far above white walls
    Red flowers and a white tree
    Waiting for the birds.

  31. Have you posted either this photo or haiku or both before? They seem incredibly familiar. Maybe that’s a false memory, but I thought I’d seen them before and liked them before. Can’t hurt to like them again 🙂

  32. Great shot. I love the shadows and stillness of the afternoon in desert climate. Beautiful.

  33. Lovely lacy leaf shadows and a wonderful pop of red that the hummingbirds would love (and so do I). — thank you for sharing and for hosting.
