Yesterday we left the house early and drove for an hour to get to our designated spot:
The May rains have brought the desert to life and I managed to sneak in a few photos in between my spraying duties, :) I wish I had my good camera with me, but I was pleasantly surprised that these turned out as well as they did seeing as I just snapped them with my phone and the sun was glaring on the screen so it was pretty much a crap shoot. Its so easy for me to get sidetracked when I have a camera in hand. The photographer in me just can not resist the urge to capture God's little masterpieces:
I did my best to stay on track and I painted every cockleburr in my path - its my version of multitasking. :)
The thing is, one cockleburr leads to another and before I know it, I look up and I've lost sight of DH and the pickup and anything familiar.
Or I spied something a flutter and the glint of sun-kissed wings drew me in:
I was utterly captivated by the busy-ness taking place among these thistles:
Alas, there is work to be done, but one of these little photos will be my screen saver on my phone and it'll be a daily reminder of a lovely morning working alongside my husband and how there is beauty in everything, even a not so glamorous job of spraying cockleburrs in the desert in the summer heat. Call me crazy, but I am so thankful for mornings like this.
