Desert in bloom

Another stunning April day in Phoenix yesterday- a time to soak up the beauty that is the desert in bloom.

A couple more weeks and this will be in full bloom. I might be back in guernsey before that so I'll make do with a few.


No need to photoshop an Arizonan sky! Unless you want clouds and drama!

I rather like the slight distortion that the wide angle gives this shot.

As always, thanks for visiting!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  1. Thank you, Barbara. I come across so many people who simply don’t know how colourful the desert is- when they think desert they think Sahara or Dubai I agree that in temperate clime we seem to get a longer growing season and more variety. I have many more birds in my garden in phoenix!


i'd love to hear from you...
