Summer in Nevada does bring some blooms even in the desert.
Even in the middle of the desert in the hottest summer there is life blooming.
Driving the road of Red Rock Canyon you come across the life in the desert.

From a rose bush that had been eaten by rabbits several time springs new life with colors abound.
Spring has sprung and the Roses have come.
Beauty and Horror
Came across this while taking the rose photos and it shows the juxtaposition of beauty and the lethality of nature at the same time.
Spring has sprung and the bees collect the stuff that bees collect.

Squirrel Comes for a Snack
While sitting at Red Rock Canyon these little ones come over any time there's food. Being they have a hard life in the desert we give them a break once in a while and they come right up to you to get it.
