D= for Desert Rose

D= for Desert Rose This ATC is made for the ABC group and goes to Gina in Ireland One of my favorite flowers. They don't belong in the climate where I live. Proof these plants trying to survive the winter and my care. They really look pityful here. Here they are where they thrive best, in Africa. After toturing them for 2 years I finally got them to blossom! I am so happy!
Don't you just love these flowers?
Which have a beautiful transparancy and colors. More about the desert rose or watch it here Desert Rose by Sting (& Cheb Mami)


  1. You are making me think that this is the next plant type I will be adding to my yard landscape! They grow like a dream here too in south Florida...they are really using them in great big bnunches for public gardens since they love the drought! I like the pink color of yours...and congrats on your blooms! Very exciting!!!

  2. A beautiful blossom. No wonder you like them so much. There are many beautifully painted dishes with the desert rose motif. Love the ATC too.

  6. marianne, where have i been? i've missed three mandalas and i can't say why. seeing them all at one time reinforces for me how precious this art is. i just love what you do, and how you share it. i know the atc i have is so brilliantly inspirational for me.

    watching the alphabet unfold from the sidelines is like going to a museum!!

    love to you, marianne
