Golden Hour – Joshua Trees

The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness. – John Muir
The other night we drove up to Cold Creek (NV,) and I was surprised to see the flowers on the Joshua Trees so well preserved. They were completely dry after the hot summer, but almost all the trees had the flowers left intact on them. They were very hard to the touch. Beautiful in their own way.
How is your week so far? The week is pretty good here. My daughter and I have dabbled in the art of painting with ink this week. It’s a whole lot harder than it looks!
We’ve also continued with our Nevada project, based on last weekends excursions, and our text book Uncovering Nevada’s Past. A good week so far 🙂 I hope yours is too!

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria

  1. When I was out there in March, the JTs were just starting to bloom. What you photographed are the seed pods. Inside are flat black seeds. You could try to grow some as a school project! The seeds require 3 months in the fridge first and it is best to use desert soil as the microbiome affects germination.
