Sunrise, and a Tree

This is how morning started a couple of weeks ago. I spend a lot of time looking at sunrises and sunsets. My furry son Charlie is usually with me, so I don't usually have my camera with me.
          .

The sun came up, the clouds cleared, and here is a shoestring acacia tree in full bloom. This particular tree, one of four in our yard, doesn't "droop" like a typical shoestring acacia, but it's the most prolific bloomer of the four.

A little closeup of the blossom.

Even closer.

Rain last night. A little water and the desert explodes with green, summer or winter. I'll keep my camera close by.
