cloudy, misty mornings are not common in the desert; more so in the upper (higher altitude) than the lower, but still are special and welcomed. This was the view from the back gate this morning. The mesa is about 2/10ths of a mile from the house, anything further away was totally enshrouded!
Pyrocantha. This plant has pretty flowers and these pretty red fruits and BIG THORNS! Birds are known to love these red berries, especially after they’ve fallen and had the chance to ferment. Then the drunken birds fly around the neighborhood. Have no idea what birds do for the hangover!
