What wonderful captures, Martha! Love the color in the first shot and the soft clouds are lovely in both shots! Looks like a promise of spring! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

The white clouds against the blue sky really make the red flowers stand out.

Diane AZ said...

Beautiful sky shots! The ocotillos and creosote look similar to those found in the Sonoran Desert.

Carolyn Ford said...

AHHHH...so nice! The ocotillo will soon highlight the deserts with wonderful red! And, I love the speckled sky!

Pam said...

Nice sky shots, Martha. The rose colored bloom is beautiful, I've never seen anything like it.

I saw ocotillo for the first time last March when we visited Arizona. I love that plant. It was just getting ready to bloom, red buds along those shy reaching branches.

Looking like a brush for me, providing what he owns, until the very last drop of colour.
Please have you all a wonderful Friday.

Great pictures - when you have a chance check out the pictures I took yesterday of our sky in Huntington Beach - there were a million birds - I think seagull flying above at sunset - the sky was spectacular! www.kellysideas.com
