Well, after 2-3 days of rains, our sun reappeared and at last we were able to get back out on our walks. The dogs were very happy with male dog Clovis proudly splashing through every standing puddle that sweet female Grace would disdain, avoid and give Clovis the disgusting look that only a girl can give.

After almost a year long drought, I expected the desert to just miraculously repair itself and to come into full bloom. Good things never seem to happen as quickly as you want. The already prolific hardy weeds were blooming in abundance, but the only out of the ordinary plant we found was this small beaver tail prickly pear cactus with one swirling scarlet bloom.
