Blooming cactus, Mesa Arizona
It is not lost on me that I only figured out how to use this photoblog just under a year ago and have not used it since. Once figured out, some images were added in a back-fill but new content has been absent. This image of one of the 28 Very Large Array (VLA) radio telescopes was taken on an extended road trip back to New Mexico after spending Christmas in Phoenix.
Nature—wild nature—dwells in gardens just as she dwells in the tangled woods, in the deeps of the sea, and on the heights of the mountains; and the wilder the garden, the more you will see of her.
