    I feel the peace and tranquility in this photo and the words. . .

  2. This is such a lovely blossom seems it deserves a better name than creosote, which makes me think of tar and unpleasant smells, but I suppose there is a reason. Perfect haiku.

      It probably does deserve a better name, especially considering its fragrance: sweet and delicious!

  3. tranquility and fragility seem to go hand in hand..

  4. Such a very lovely fragile desert flower! And the bokeh enhances it beautifully!

  5. Very pretty!

  6. your macro image takes my breath away! I continue to be amazed at the beauty you find in the desert. love your verse too!

  7. Wilderness tranquility sounds so inviting when one in my neck of the world has to settle for a slender strip of woods still within throwing distance of cars and noise!

      If it’s any consolation, I can hear freight trains rumbling by–several per hour–not even a mile away!

  9. Delicate, yet so strong to survive in it’s environment!

  10. Marks the coming of spring !!!
