Dry, Dry, Dry


Tucson has had a very dry winter and spring so this is what the desert looks like. In good years it would be greener and there would be spring flowers. The pinkish red plant in the foreground is some kind of cholla cactus. The picture was taken at the Saguro National Monument East.

Nice view...but of course a greener land would be much more beautiful! Hope you'll have more rain this year =)

I love the desert too though it is an aquired taste.... It has to rain eventually. We haven't had significant rain in months... I want to see the flowers too! I finally bought a camera I can take macro pictures with and the desert just isn't going to bloom this year. Its the annuals that make it really spectacular in good years and they are just waiting it out til next year (the seeds can live in the soil for a long time waiting for rain)... Tucson has a thriving alternative music community and I know next to nothing about it. Went to their website - supersuckers.com of course - and l'm guessing I'd really like their music but my dialup connection kind of screwed up extended listening. Anyway heres a link that might interest you. http://www.tucsonweekly.com/gbase/cinema/Content?oid=oid:72246

Hi Nicholas - That's one of the things I like about these daily photo blogs, all the different places. And just in Tucson, in trying to give a variety of landscapes, I'm noticing different qualities of light and different aspects of the city that I never noticed before. Louz
