Desert Spring - Faux Toes

Our little patch of desert has been exploding with color, despite the spring winds.  Here are some recent images.  All but the first couple have been played with to make them resemble a painting or some other non-photographic medium.  We call those "Faux toes" -- the French word for false, and a goofy way of letting the name sound almost like "Photos."
Not all of the plants on this page are native to this locale, I confess.

    I too like to play with images. Do you mind if I use one or two of yours for a post on It will most likely illustrate a haiku.
