South West Treasure Quest

Yucca with a flower stalk
Bird of Paradise found in New Mexico

Went on a road trip last week. Drove from California to New Mexico. I love the desert. All the cacti, agave and yuccas that grow wild every where. Looking out and seeing the natural land without the human hand. It is magnificent. The clouds seem to be so close that you might be able to touch them. I will have to say it was a great adventure. I highly recommend a south west desert adventure. Especially if you are a lover of the cactus/succulent world.

Unnamed Cactus

I collected so many cool rocks. Some of them have small little crystals growing inside them. They are going to look wonderful in my flower bed. I love to collect rocks from every where I go an add them to my flower beds.

The yuccas are every where. And they have recently flowered and their stalks make wonderful walking sticks. So I cut like 6 stalks. I will post another blog on the process of turning them into walking sticks at a later time.

Agave

There is so much that you can collect and turn into amazing little creations. I also collected a couple dead/decayed cacti. They can basically be used in the same way as drift wood. Perfect for some succulent pups to grow up in.
