Enchanting Desert- Palm Springs, California

Palm trees are always such a special treat for me.

Taken at a gas station- can you believe it?
or night...
Did you see the crescent moon?

Peacock Flowers in the afternoon sun:


 Poolside beauties:

Bougainvillea- the flower that tells me I'm in a place that I'm about to fall in love with:                  

 The lemon tree in the background sent me home with 
fruit that has become jelly, and I call it 'sunshine in a jar'...

The Palm Springs Art Museum with a polished reflection of natural surroundings 
that contrasts with the modern art hiding inside the building:


Hard to believe all of this exists in a hot, dry desert 
where water is scarce and the sun beats down 350 days a year.
Somehow, beauty that endures less than ideal conditions is even more alluring...



  1. So, you know, you can feel free to take me with you next time, kay? ;O)

  2. Fantastic photos! Love the desert.

  3. wow, that is pretty...those palm trees remind me of san diego...I was so psyched to see them that that is all I could stare at! lol. Looks like you had a lot of fun!

  4. Gorgeous pictures! Thanks for stopping by Tossing it Out for my guest post. I'm a new follower. :)

  5. Nice photos. I like Palm Springs when it's a little cooler or looking out my car window with the a/c cranked up high. The art museum there is very nice. My daughter had a friend that used to work there and we visited once.

    A Faraway View

  6. beauty that endures less than ideal conditions is even more alluring..

    That's the story of my life, hon
