1 Shot Wednesday: Desert Blossoms

From prickly situations come the blossoms of rebirth and wisdom.

Arizona is made for wandering and hiking. You’ll never know what you’ll find. For instance, the cholla. There are several varieties. Spotting one of these in bloom reminds me there is beauty amongst the prickly parts of life. Find it and hold on.

    1. I thought of you when I posted it. This one is interesting because the hue is orangey instead of red.
