magic in the hills









Silent.
Sunlit.
Early morning in the desert.
Time to wander, to gather.
Time to see the beauty of Nature, all around me.

    1. Good Grief, woman! I nearly sprayed lemon hibiscus tea all over the keyboard! But I must admit, hiking in the desert does beat the snot out of hairballs. xx

  3. I get me a little piece of the desert when I visit you.
    I'm warmer, I can almost feel the sun on my skin. The crunch underfoot of last years ocotillo branch that fell to the dirt.
    The blooms, the sweet sweeeeet succulents, kissing the sky.
    I love the desert. I will see her soon. Thank you, Sagey, for this preview.

    1. The desert loves you too! Sending a little New Mexico sun your way, along with the smell of sage and the sound of canyon wrens. The desert waits for you, sister! xx

  5. the hills are alive!! it is such a contrast with our dormant, snowy, icy world. i am trying to make the best of things regardless of the weather-- icy days are for spoiling the indoor pets, and warm spells are for going out to spend time with the equines. going with the flow rather than against it-- trying, at least! glad to see you out soaking up the morning sun!

    1. Yes, I agree with the notion of going with the flow. This time of year is for desert hiking. When the warmer weather comes, we head into the higher country. And when it snows in the desert, it's time to get out and play!

      Keep spoiling those pets! xx
