Desert views…

Linda and Paul live outside of Buckeye, AZ, and the landscape is beautiful in a flat, dry, desert-y sort of way. The colors are intense and the sky is so big! I like the look of power lines running off into the far distance in the photo below.

Sun City Festival, the community where Linda and Paul live, is planted with mostly native plants that don’t require a lot of water and can tolerate the heat. I’ve been walking this path in the morning.

I had forgotten how green the bark is on a Palo Verde tree. They make me happy, especially against a blue sky.

There are palm trees, but only where they get water.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been in such an open place. It feels good, more relaxed, but maybe that’s because I’m on vacation with my best friend :-).

  1. There is absolutely nothing better than vacation with your best friend !!! And if it includes warm weather and quilting – even better!!! Enjoy. No matter how long you stay, it will be too short of a time!

  2. Sun City Festival is a beautiful area! We have a good friend that has a place there that he uses through the winter months. I hear they have an active quilt group out there at the center too. Enjoy!!
