Spring Mysteries, MMM Part 1

Spring Comes to my Desert Garden:






click any image to enlarge: Lilacs, Tulips, Blooming Rosemary, Yellow Gopher Plants


Spring Also Comes to Mountain Meadows:


But what is this strange "crop" growing in the once lush meadow?









Who placed these rocks here and why? What strange roots grow under these rock "formations"? The archeologist in me wants to know if there are bodies buried under the rocks.

Stay tuned .... it is quite a sad story ...

I can hardly wait.

Love your flowers. They are beautiful.

Thanks for the Bloomin' bloom photos.
It's always nice to see those brave plants putting out their bold splashes of color, despite the winter.

It really heps balance out the blahs of winter months.

Look forward to hearing more about the *strange fruit* in the hillsides.

*****I neglected to mention those odd rock formations are all about 6-ft long, about the avg height of a 19th century man in western boots!*****

Annette:
there may not be much suspense, but plenty of mystery!

Fran:
I love spring blooms. tons of bees on the rosemary so far. morning doves are hanging around the privets, I don't know why, but hope they're not building a nest because a neighbor's cat has been spotted in the backyard. lizards & chipmunks are racing around. Clyde charged 2 rabbits today who were inspecting some cotoneasters. yup, spring has sprung.

Your spring my autumn :( Not that my winter is any great drama. At times I'd love the flowering plants to take a break for a while just for the sake of contrast.
Look forward to your unfolding mystery.

Cart:
now you're making me miss San Diego. don't think I'd ever get tired of flowers, unless they were of the sneezy variety.

Jimmy Hoffa.

D.K. Raed said...

Dr Know: good guess, but these would have to be Hoffa's great great grandfathers & grandmothers. stay tuned!

Dr. Know said...

Well, D.K., I was mostly kidding, since you have more information from which to form a conclusion. But I'll be watching for the rejoinder.

D.K. Raed said...

Dr Know: I knew you were kidding ... even Geraldo Rivera wouldn't think it took that many stone crosses to bury Hoffa. you'll have to scroll up for my next couple installments in the sad saga.
