Bloggers might remember when the desert opened: the first visit and poem, here. In January of 2017, the poems from Fiestaestrellas were revised, compiled and given energy. The finished book, Art for Art, can be purchased here, which includes previously unpublished content. Below is my offering to you. May your deserts blossom.

When did you go? We were there on Friday and the bloom hadn’t really reached optimal levels.
Was this optimal? My second time there. The first time was barren. Our rain dances were heard!
Sunday ~ no time to edit 🙂 Wishing you a Happy Monday. Much Love, Ka
These are gorgeous. Wish it was real spring here.
Hee hee. This is Scotland. I don’t know if we do Spring. I dunno if we do summer either… x
It’s been a while since I’ve been to Scotland (1995 ish) – Edinburgh. It was foggy and beautiful.
Thank you, Shey!
You are welcome. I can look and pretend it is spring,
There you go! 🙂
Thank you for this breath of fresh air! I like the contrast between the light, delicate flowers and the sturdy hills with the blue sky above….and that dragon!!!
Your comment says it all, JoAnna! Happy Vernal Equinox 🙂
Delightful photos Ka. Is this the desert super bloom happening in the SW US that I keep hearing about?
Thank you, Brad. I bet this is just one tiny part of the whole bloom. Let’s both look for more pictures 🙂
Yes, One beautiful part of the bloom. 🙂
I’m glad that you approve 🙂 I wonder what little critters are hidden in the pictures – unseen. Think of all those insects?!
Ha, ha. 🙂 I’ve heard these blooms attract many insects, birds, bees, etc. Enjoy!
Hahaha… indeed! Thank you ~ this isn’t my backyard, so I’ll enjoy the pictures… and the memories.
A desert full of flowers is a beautiful sight!
Thank you! I had photographed the pollen on my shoe – and it think you might have liked the detail, but the photograph didn’t have the opportunity to get worked on via editing to see if there was an intriguing photo there. Maybe another time!
Love the thoughts and feelings of ‘let your deserts bloom’.
Beautifully pictured here, nature’s delicate power embraces us all.
Enjoy every precious day, Eddie
Thank you, Eddie! Appreciating your kindness and reflection…
Lovely pictures, Ka!! Wow! Such brilliant color. I especially love the caterpillar.
Could you please send some rain here to our Sangres de Christo mountains of northern NM? We are in a pretty bad drought right now. Need some moisture. In fact, whoever reads this, please send us rain. And btw, Ka’s book is soooooo GREAT! I encourage everyone to push that button and get one!
Each caterpillar is different. You can just FEEL that. I looked at a picture of Sangres de Christo – beautiful! I saw storms in 2014. Hope you get some moisture soon! Thank you for your love and appreciation of Art for Art – it’s so encouraging in the most caring way! When we receive and give what we receive, it feels like it completes a delicate circuit of life, it generates more energy for giving more. Looking forward to more pictures from you on your gorgeous blog. I thought of you while I was out there – how we don’t know what we are photographing (even if we think we do!)
So much love to you my dear friend,
What beautiful photos of flowers – incredible post! xxx
Thank you for your kind words and visit. 🙂
Any time ❤️
