desert snow

It's hard walking around on days of extravagant snowfall, like today, without taking cliched picture after cliched picture of prettiness.   This manages, at least, to have a touch of the surreal to it.   I'm fond of this cactus - it often has birds perched in it - but today it truly came into its own as installation art.   All the little lumps, like white sand dunes, are low growing tufts of tough grass.   Needless to say, it being mid March, a good deal has melted by now, but it was a treat to wake up to.
