It seems when you drive in the desert the whole world has turned to sand, and you wonder how these wonderful plants can survive.. Adapt.
You see every type and shape, soft and "fluffy" to sharp and stickery.
We are very fortunate, that with the winds we had, the sand was not flying..
There is always the possibility of 0 viability.. Grateful, only little twisters in the distance, Blue sky's.
Maybe these plants can teach us something, adapting to our surroundings.
