Plant still life desert


Plant still life desertPlant Still life – Desert: this month’s topic for Urban Jungle Bloggers.

When I saw this month’s topic, I immediately had to think about my road trip with my bestie Meke. The last time I visited her in the USA, we drove from Kansas City to San Diego and passed the Grand Canyon, the desert and a lot of other beautiful landscapes.

Plant still life desertThe Selaginella pilifera (Rose of Jericho) is a desert plant. When put in water it opens up, becomes green and starts growing, it is a miraculous plant. I have had it for many years now and it still amazes me.

I love to travel and this trip was one of the highlights. Can’t wait to visit her again. Or go to some other country that we already picked to go travel together to in the future.

Loved styling this little still life for Urban Jungle Bloggers again!
