Desert Garden glowing in setting sun near Mobius arch
From the top of the picture where the Mobius arch is, it took me about 2 minutes to find this composition. What drew me down here was the desert garden strategically placed there by the gardener upstairs.
The rabbit brush bushes were in their fall bloom season, fragrant and attractive unless perhaps you are an allergy sufferer. Luckily for me, they were just an aromatic bush that I was happy to be around. The upright desert needle grass as well some other flowering bushes could not have found a more sheltered location. This place perhaps gets very minimal rainfall but the snow in the winter is what keeps these plants coming back year after year.
