Small World Saturday is hosted by Egypt Everlasting, and the idea is for us to understand each other better by learning about the different places in the world. Each week we are given a theme, and after that, it’s up to us. This week the theme is WATER. Please, join in the fun!
For the last ten years, I’ve lived in West Texas, and it’s not really a place that I associate with water.
All of the native plants have adapted to the arid conditions. This may look like an aloe, but it’s a Century Plant.
It send up a spike, and has the most unique looking flowers. (No comments from the peanut gallery. lol)
This is when the plant is at “full bloom.”
One of the reasons that I moved here was for the dry conditions. (If the humidity is over 25%, the locals feel oppressed by the air.) An added benefit is the stark beauty. From the first day I arrived, I fell in love with the sky.
Occasionally, the rains do come.
All the dust is washed off everything, and we have a moment of lushness.
But soon, things return to normal, and we have to put up with the monotony of blue sky. (Oh, darn! LOL)
So, what does water mean in your world? Pop over to Egypt Everlasting and share it with us!
Next week's theme is SCHOOL.
