The Desert Blossoms (Father Ted Bobosh)
Photos by Fr. Ted Bobosh a parish priest in the American Orthodox tradition. All commentary in this article is by Father Ted.
The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad, the desert shall rejoice and blossom; like the crocus it shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with joy and singing. (Isaiah 35:1-2)
Despite the fact that it was still winter in the desert, and the spring bloom is a couple months away, there were in fact blossoms and color in the desert as can be seen in the photos above and below.
There is an amazing amount of color – in the plants, the birds, the rocks, the clouds, sunrises and sunsets.
