There Must Be Water

The California Fan Palm is an indicator that there's water around here. The shrub, with the red flowers, is a Chuparosa.

You are right. Otherwise there would be no life. As the picture opened, I was wondering what's coming. The trees were odd looking.

Oh yeah !! Nature has her system of signs. This palm tree is one of them.

It's amazing what a palm looks like when man is not there to keep its dead foliage trimmed. It looks like a whole new beast. I love the bush's vibrant dots of flowers!

The pops of red give a bit of life to this dry landscape.

I wonder how deep one would have to dig to reach the water. Lovely desert scene.

That is an interesting observation. I would not have figured that out! I like how the palm is framed by those big rocks.

I find the vegetation so interesting and beautiful in an apparently dry place like this! But water is there!
