Sharing the beauty of our world

The Fairy Duster (Calliandra eriophylla) is a low spreading shrub, commonly found in the deserts and arid grasslands of the southwest.



Saguaro cactus are so slow growing that it takes six to eight years for them to reach just one inch in height.  Arms may sprout after 70 years as they continue to grow.  These desert giants can reach a height of 50 feet at age 150.

A fresh layer of snow covers Mount Ashland.




Late winter sun shines through bare trees, turning the creek banks a bright spring green.

Colorful barrels filled with red wine, stacked and aging to perfection.

The brilliant blue sky creates a contrasting backdrop for snow covered trees.

All was quiet today as we gazed at this potentially active volcano. Rising just over 14,000 feet, Mount Shasta is the second highest peak in the Cascade Range of western North America.
