green vs. dry

Hardly any rain down here this winter, so no seasonal flowering this time.
The Caper (Capparis spinosa) manages to hold its own, usually sprouting in cracks between stones. I spotted a young one today in a pretty improbable place - in a crack on a big boulder, completely exposed - stubborn little guy.
The other shots show other specimens - the bud can be pickled.
The GR had trouble focusing - had to use pinpoint focus.

The last one is a recent stitch.

Nice studies and canyon landscape. You have me curious, where is "down here"?

Hi Frankoz - "down here" is the southern tip of Israel. An extreme desert, only between 10-50 mm. of rain a year. For the desert to start flowering here nicely you need at least one rainfall of 10 mm. at once. This winter has not been nice to vegetation (although there have been spots that received 30 mm. - there can be great variation over short distances).
Thanks for looking and comments. BTW, you can see the location of the members - if they decide to show it - on the right side of any post, under their name.
