There are indeed many many murals in the Coachella Valley. (6 traffic boxes are mine!) Here’s an invitation from the Palm Springs Life magazine to go looking for them.
Remains of the puddle from the last couple days. The ocotillo is** actually blooming a little.
I’m dreaming of a wet Christmas
with every neighbor that I’ve met
May your ocotillo bloom red,
and my all your Christmases be wet.
Storm over the Badlands when we drove home yesterday.
