Take a closer look.

I noticed some birds hanging around eating seeds, so I sat down for a bit, hoping they’d move close enough for a phone shot. That didn’t happen but I did get a closer look at some of the plants. I found these leaves rather attractive, but does everything in the desert have sharp edges? πŸ™‚

    Excellent captured. πŸ™‚ Guess the sharp edges in deserts depend on the desert. In Sahara no matter how rough place it might be there are a lot of (apparently) soft gentle curves. But desert area like US, southern Africa and especially in Australia there are really many sharp edges. πŸ™‚

    wow – like the edges – and the light and lines

    Dear Janet,

    Nature doing what nature does best. Adapt and survive. Just like us, right? Off to wrench a blog post out of thin air. See you.



  5. HAHA. Self defense at work. What a lovely plant though.,
    I envy you being in a new place with stuff to explore. Can’t wait to see what you find next.

    The edges make for a pretty picture.

    I use that color combo a lot when I am coloring. Nice to see it in nature. Great shot.

    Sharp edges…. huh. There must be something to that.
    Janet, that is a very interesting observation. Of course lemons don’t have sharp edges, but then again, their flavour is sharp.

    • Up until now, your comments were always coming through. Just found four in the spam file. How rude of WP!!!

        Rude, yes, but now I am free!
        Thank you, Janet!
        I check my Spam once a month. It’s non-sensical who sometimes ends up in there.

      • I’ve been getting bombarded with spam, 20-50 per day or in several days. They all end up in the spam folder and almost all have the same message. But I always check before I delete all so I don’t get rid of any legitimate comments.

      • Resa says:

        That’s a crazy amount of spam!
        Good thing you check it all. I don’t get much spam, but I do check it regularly. It’s nuts who ends up in there, time to time.

      • I haven’t gotten much for a long time up until a couple of weeks ago when this latest round started. Fortunately, WP’s spam folder catches them.
