  2. No mesquite here in the hinterlands, teacherman. I’m envious.

  3. also to me! Very pretty.

  4. I didn’t know what mesquite looked like – it is lovely – thank you for the picture.

  5. The nectar of the gods (and bees 🙂 are contained within the Spring flowers in the still temperate desert!
