Overwhelmed

Yesterday and today I am overwhelmed by your sweet words of encouragement from yesterday's post about my transition phase.

And, by you urging me to continue blogging and sharing our stories, adventures and photos.

Thank you!

I had also sent a request to all my Facebook friends asking them to Like my Facebook page entitled the same 'From City Streets to Country Roads'.

What an overwhelming response to that as well.

I'm sitting here amazed and in complete and utter shock that so many responded to that request.  Wow!  I truly have great friends!

Overwhelming I tell ya', simply overwhelming.

When Miss LizzieBelle and I took our morning walk, I took my camera along to photograph some yellow flowers CountryBoy spotted on our walk the evening before.

The flowers weren't as open as the previous evening but they were still beautiful.


The landscape is SO different than what we're used to back home.

I took for granted all the trees, flowers, lakes, grass and the color that they all provided.

Here, the landscape is primarily hard dirt, rocks and mountains.  No grass, no trees and very few lakes which means there's not a big variety of color.

Don't get me wrong, it is beautiful here, too, but very different than what I'm used to.

So, any time I see some color, I get very excited!


Color!


And very tiny.




One of these little flowers aren't even as big as my pinky nail!


So tiny and yet surviving in the desert.

I took my camera again last night during our evening walk.  The sun was about to set and the light was perfect so CountryBoy took LizzieBelle while I knelt down on the desert ground and shot away.

I'm guessing you know what that means.... there will be more photos of tiny plants and flowers coming soon!

Pretty colors, woot!

Are you surrounded by color or do you have to seek it out?

Till next time,

I'm so glad to hear you received encouragement and will continue on. Sometimes we all just need a little boost. Enjoyed your desert blooms. :)

You did a wonderful job of photographing these small yet pretty desert blooms - I especially like your last photo. We tend to be surrounded by colour all year round here, even more so with our recent excessive rains.

Those little flowers are like jewels. We are still having to seek out colour in the garden here. Most of the colour is
indoors at the moment with a few pot plants and cut flowers. I'm looking forward to more colour in the natural, outdoor setting.

They are very pretty! Keep snapping away.. I love seeing the desert flowers. We are still pretty blah here in MO.. but I'm catching glimpses of green. More every day! But they're telling me more snow tomorrow, which doesn't excite me :-/ -Tammy
