Monday Dose of I:The Blooming Desert















Spring in the Agafay desert just outside of Marrakesh. We spent a few days here--there had been so much rain over the winter in this little oasis, we found little riots of color at every turn along with green fields of mint, wild rocket, and our room in our very healthy olive grove...just thought a little riot of color would start the week off right...happy monday.

Isn't the desert in bloom magical?
I gather that it has been a very wet winter and spring in Marrakesh and all the farmers are ecstatic.
Wish I'd been with you......

Just lovely.

If I remember correctly, it was May at least before I saw any wildflowers blooming in this desert.

Thanks for the punch of color!
