May Flowers in the Desert

May 1st, 2009 by judytalks

It’s May 1st, cloudy in Arizona, but the desert is in bloom. My prickly pear is covered with bright yellow flowers, which brings swarms of bees for the spring rite of pollination. Whew!
We spent a couple days this past week observing the hugh varieties of cactus and their abundant blossoms. A trip to the arboretum saw a wonder of plant life that was both still and stunning. A miracle in progress. The next day we visited the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, another spectacular array of all things native to the southwest. A special treat accompanied this trip. The gifted handblown glass artist, Dale Chihuly was exhibiting his work, placed outside among the desert plants. It’s more than a visual treat; it’s truly inspiring.
Creativity takes many forms. Most of us aren’t geniuses, but our endeavor to bring balance, tranquility, peace, beauty – whatever moves you-gives both nature and humanity refreshment and relaxation.
If you want or need to rebalance a part of your life, plant a garden, plant a cactus, paint a rock, visit a garden or nature center and breathe in the fresh outlook.
I wish you well,
