It couldn't make up its mind today if it wanted to be bright and sunny or cloudy and rainy so it ended up being a little of both.
I've been so relaxed here at the rodeo arena boondocking area in Ajo that I totally lost track of time and forgot that my self-imposed rule of moving every two weeks requires that I move tomorrow, so it's a good thing I don't like to follow rules.
The weather forecast calls for rain tonight and tomorrow so I guess I will delay my self-imposed move for a few days. It normally requires, in the very least, upper-level management to make a decision of that magnitude and everyone in the chain of command has to be informed. The request must be made in triplicate. Upper echelon managers, Accounting, Legal Staff and H.R. are required to be consulted within 48 hours of any decision and approval or recommendations given in writing. Fortunately those rules don't apply to me because.... I'M THE BOSS!
I'm still not sure where I want to go. I want to see a desert wildflower Super Bloom which looks more and more likely every day because all the years I've been coming to southern Arizona I've never seen the desert this green before. What is normally just barren sand now has green vegetation growing all over it, and vegetation that is normally ankle high is now knee-high. I've heard some flowers are blooming in the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument so I might make the looong drive to the visitor center tomorrow morning.
You might ask why do I want to do that if it's supposed to rain tomorrow, and that would be a good question. You see around here the skies are mostly blue and cloudless, and cloudless skies don't make for the best pictures so I'm hoping for some clouds and maybe even a little rain to help with my pictures. Lord knows they need all the help they can get.
A few more pictures of the small plants that dot the desert and get very little attention. This whole bundle of flowers is the size of my thumbnail so you can imagine how small each little flower is.
This small bush is covered with little fuzzy things, and for some strange reason the leaves look like their wet but they're not.
This is a little family of Fishhook cactus, their well hidden under a bush.
Close by I found a fishhook cactus starting to grow some fruit, the bright red is hard to miss, and so is the reason it's called a fishhook cactus.
