Here in our desert southwest, we have many desert willows. I have two in my own yard and many dot the washes. Right now, they are getting little green leaves. During the winter months, they look dead, but they are actually just dormant. Soon they will have little pink/purple flowers on them. They really are quite graceful and I always enjoy seeing them. This one was in the wash where I went walking last Saturday. I like how it appeared to be reaching for the blue sky. SkyWatch Friday and Looking at the Sky on Friday for March 26, 2010.
