Globemallow is generally a pretty prolific wildflower seen in the springtime in Arizona. But last spring, it lit up the roadways for miles. It intertwined with penstemon and brittlebush. It glowed at sunset, and at dawn, waved good morning. I wanted to see more. Luckily, I have several wonderful friends I can drag flower hunting with me. On this day my special artist friend April hopped in True Blue (Jeep) and we went exploring. It was her birthday. We found Apache tears, old mines and cows, and we found this pretty scene, like an intimate chapel with stained glass windows sheltered beneath a mesquite tree.
Sometimes creation preaches. Loud and clear.
And good friends are a blessing.
