Along the wash

Yesterday morning I walked along the wash. A few things are coming to life with the recent rains. I found green things growing in areas where the water runs off or pools.

Praying for more rain to come 🙏

Have a blessed Sunday!

Where there seems to be nothing, you can still find something beautiful.

    1. Yes, it is! Sometimes I go out with my camera, and I don’t know if I’ll find anything exciting. But I really can find something photo worthy if I try 😊 Thanks Jeff!

    I looked to see who the author was for the final quote in your post Lisa and what do you know….it was YOU! That’s such a beautiful thought to go with your beautiful images. Hard to believe it’s the desert isn’t it?! Here in SC we’ve been in a drought but the last few weeks have taken us out of it. Now we just have to hope we avoid the storms of hurricane season! Mother Nature – gotta love her!

    1. Thank you, Tina! At least we don’t get hurricanes here. But, without water we’re in trouble! 💦

    Lovely greens. Perhaps you could send some of that rain our way? And I so agree with your last sentence!

        London had only 9% of its usual July average and August has been dry so far too 😦
