Desert Beauties

While walking Miss LizzieBelle the other day, I ran across an area that was extremely dry and parched.  

Like a dried up pond or lake.

There were tiny plants growing out of the cracks in the sand.


Upon closer inspection I saw a bee flitting from tiny flower to tiny flower looking for a bit of sweet nectar.


Behind me was a small rock nestled against another small bunch of tiny plants.


To maybe give you a better perspective of size, the rock is a fairly small rock guesstimating a diameter of six to eight inches.


So dainty and delicate looking but must be very hardy to survive the dryness and winds of the desert.

And so many varieties in one tiny clump.


This proves to me, once again, that beauty can be found everywhere.  Sometimes it may not be obvious but it's there.  Look for it.  You'll find it.  And then marvel at the beauty you've just found and thank the Maker of such beauty for this bit you've just witnessed.  It will brighten your day!

Till next time,

Very cool! Must be tough to be a bee out there though:@)

I agree! I'm finding more and more beauty, even during the winter months. And I don't have to look hard anymore. These are perfect examples.

This is a good post - I loved it.

I agree with you, I can always find beauty in little things that most would overlook - even weeds.

I'm so impressed at all those different plants growing in one clump of cracked earth. God is good.

This was a very nice post! I liked reading this. I agree that many little things are overlooked, and we just need to take out the time to notice it.

Sweet little flowers and little bees. A sure sign that spring is coming and warmer days not far behind.

That little plant is attracting the bees and even if it's a struggle it has its place in God's world. Always, we can see beauty and purpose all around us if we stop, look and marvel.

I have a "thing" for tiny flowers. I think it may have come from spending time as a little girl exploring the alpine flowers. :)
Enjoy the beauty!
Hugs,
