Brittle Bush

Brittle Bush I

Brittle Bush
Common Names: Incienso, White brittle bush
Genus: Encelia
Species: farinosa

The desert is starting to move into Spring and the 'Brittle Bush' at Lake Mead is in full bloom.

Last week we had temps in the high 80's. This week, 70's with wind. Spring in the southwest means WIND, wind and some more wind. Not always wind that can be used either. I mean, often it's just not 'sailing wind.' But at least it's not oh-so-cold like many places back east. I've been sleeping with my windows open and that is heaven!!

Last weekend on the boat it was almost too warm for about 2 minutes. Hehehhe. Roxy, my slip neighbor's dog, enjoyed the warmth of our soon to be fleeting Spring days.

Things are coming along meditation-wise. My friend Chris loaned me some furniture and delivered it too!! I love my new space, it's very warm and should afford a good place to meditate. Later today, Kenny will help me move a table in. WOOT!!

Yesterday while sightseeing in Felicity, CA we were caught up in a turn-your-back-to-protect-yourself wind. Which also made it tough to geocache in the foothills where the footing is already unsteady on the loose rock.

Will there be pictures of the new meditation place?
