Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

African daisies~Outdoor Wednesday 031111











I know that some of you are dealing with snow right now, but here in the desert, flowers are blooming. These are some African daisies that I planted in my front yard, out by the street. I planted them last December, from the seeds that I got from last year's crop. They get full sunlight all day, but I notice that they don't open up until about 11:00 a.m.! Hmmmm.....They close just as soon as the sun starts to go down over the nearby mountain in the afternoon. Aren't they colorful? Enjoy! Outdoor Wednesday for March 1, 2011.
