Reflections and flowers.

“The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware.”
Henry Miller
Today is the sort of day I truly enjoy. I have a project going that requires a lot of relaxing repetitious work.
Why do i like that sort of day? Well I can let my mind wander a bit while I work. Think of new ideas, decide where I want to go with the things I am doing in my life, What things have priority in my life and that sort of thing. Sometimes we get so busy just doing that we forget to take stock of where we are and where we want to go.
So I have enjoyed my day. Nothing earth crashing in my thinking, but feel more focused and relaxed about things.
Project is progressing, But still has a ways to go. Think I might just go crochet outside for a little while since the sun is shining.
I promised Flower pictures. These are from our hike on the 19th.
The Desert amazes me when I see such beauty. Or should I say I am amazed by such beauty in a desert?

I just love the delicacy of these flowers. One of my favorites if you can't tell. 
Nature paints with the most exquisite palette

These are truly delicate little flowers. I almost missed them.

Such soft colors. These really appeal to me.

Even the berries are striking. The promise of new growth.

Of course more fairy dusters.

Love the pristine white of these.

And then there are the ones that cry out to be noticed.
No matter how small they are.

These are also some of my favorites. The humming birds love these.

Even some of the cactus are beginning to bloom

And who can't help but be touched by such simple beauty.
