Weekly Photo Challenge: Fray

During an early morning stroll along the many rock lined paths (my husband’s handiwork) that wind all over our two acres of property I eventually discovered something ‘frayed’. As I diligently scanned the landscape my eyes finally rested on this desert hearty plant.
The Mojave yucca grows profusely in this region of Arizona. As the photo reveals, each of its green leathery stalks has a host of ‘fraying’ hairs on them. I’m not sure what the purpose of these hairs are, but they do give an otherwise ordinary plant an interesting look.

It was too hard to decide which of the three of these photos to use for this week’s photo challenge, so I made it easy on myself and selected all three!
Being in a playful mood, my first photo taken shows a section of the Grand Canyon between my two feet. In the middle photo my husband Dave, also in playful mode, holds up two sea kelps that were found washed up on the shore. The final photo shows a trio of bright little wild flowers blooming in the desert – by necessity one being betwixt the other two!
