The first blooms of Spring come from the Desert Peach. They have just started to bud in this last week. I've been without my Cool-Pix since shortly after vacation as I left my charger in one of the five places we stayed. Ian ordered me another one but it took four weeks to get here from Hong Kong. It's nice to have my old friend back and I took it on our walk this morning. As I told DD Chris, walk applies to me. The dogs run insanely after rabbits and rabbits imagined.
Everything has to struggle to survive in the hostile environ-
ment of the high desert. Look at this closeup and check out those nasty barbs. I don't know if their small peach-like fruit is edible but what bird would want to find out?!
