Spring in the Desert

The cactus is full of buds and blooms.  All plants are coming to life in an array of color.  The magnificent pink blossom blooms for only a day on one cactus while clumps of fuchsia and orange blossoms grace another cactus.  The saguaro has a bouquet of white blossoms at the end of each arm and the prickly pear has dark burgundy fruit outlining the edge of its "paddles".  I never thought of the desert as beautiful.  Living in Mesa has opened my eyes to the beauty around me.  It inspires my creativity to pick up my paintbrush and pallet.  The desert birds create a symphony as I paint.  A woodpecker keeps a rhythmic beat for the cooing morning doves who harmonize with the quail.  The cactus wren carries the melody as the jackals provide a brassy backup.  Purple finch sing a countermelody lilting through the air.  We leave soon for our northern home in Grand Forks, North Dakota and watch as spring returns again with fresh new leaves on trees and roses, peonies, and lavender begin to sprout.  Spring is a canvas ready for a masterpiece.
