Beautiful cactus blossoms.
Amazing to me that amid the somewhat harsh terrain of the desert, there is such absolute beauty.
Even if it is just for a little while.
white blossoms on these cactus will fade in just twenty four hours.
Gone, but not forgotten.
sweet hubby and I, ran away for a few days.
We visited beautiful St. George.
Celebrated our twenty fifth anniversary.
Relaxed, laughed, and did a lot of "remember whens".
wonderful to get away together.
To leave work, chores, and daily life behind, and enjoy new views,
How fortunate we were that the desert put on a Spring blossom
show for us.
St. George temple.
How it stands out and shines in the red landscape.
You know, I don't think I've EVER gone on a trip that I didn't track down a nursery, and spend some time there.
I adore a great nursery.
An old cotton mill.
It's so great that this old building can be enjoyed by people, and it makes a wonderful back-drop for a nursery.
Leaving St. George.
We'll go back.
It's really not too far of a drive.
We will probably wait for Fall, and the weather to cool down again.
In the meantime, we'll enjoy our valley weather beginning to warm.
I'll share a few more pictures of our trip later.... and I got the best idea while I was there.
I'll share that idea later too.
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm so grateful for my sweet hubby. He loves me eternally.
I'm the luckiest girl in the world.
~I'm grateful that my sweet hubby is so smart!
We had a mechanical problem with the car, and he was able to pull
into a parts store, buy new parts and right there in the parking lot he was able to fix our car, and
get us back to our vacation! I was trying not to have a melt-down and he just kept grinnin' at me and telling my it was no big deal.
What a guy!
