Joshua Blooms 2019

Hello!  I haven't been around for the past several months.  (Thanks to those who inquired if everything was alright.)  Just too much going on, (travel, Disneyland with the grands, purchase of new house, and preparing another house to sell), that I had to put my camera away for awhile.  But a couple of weeks ago I stole a few minutes just before sunset to drive into Snow Canyon for a shot of my favorite Joshua Tree.  It's my favorite because of the beautiful background to show it off.  This year was a Joshua Tree super bloom.  A few bloom every year but most do not, then some years they have a super bloom when most all the trees in Utah, Arizona, Nevada and California bloom during the same season.  The experts don't know exactly how they all know which year to bloom!  P.S.  Our new home is right behind the red cliffs in the distance.

Just a hop and a skip to home. Hope it is all you need, and what you want can be the bonus. We have what we need in our new home, built of NZ native timber in 1951, we are having alterations for new necessities... new bathroom, one will have a walk in wet floor shower, then along the hallway a huge storage room for fabric and other stuff( Hugh told a friend there will not be any room left for that), Hugh has his lined garage, a concrete driveway that drains off the rain water so well, and we are adjusting to close neighbours and near the street and footpath. I hope you will be as happy as we are, and blessed to have found what we needed in the right time. Easter Greetings to you and yours. Beautiful scenery, the tree is amazing with those huge rocky areas behind.

A little rain can do wondrous things, huh.
