I suppose the ocotillo is the only thing I actually recoginze. I guess a small egg and I have no idea why the horseshoe "print" seems to be in reverse.

. . . while I was living around there (El Paso) I was told that pouring a bucketful of water to ocotillo, it will bloom in about two weeks.

My guess - a snake egg and a horseshoe with a "shell" of compacted rock dust over it?

Wonder if there will be anything left of "Jova" when it reaches your area?

That "Shoe" print looks pretty fresh from my perspective.

ratgirls said...

Now I'm thinking the shoe is a print - it's an optical illusion in the photo that it looks both convex and concave. I just noticed the light is coming from the lower right - our eyes are more accustomed to see the light coming from the upper left (at least that's what we are taught in illustration school). So the image goes either way, depending on the viewer's perception.

At ratgirls comment (and now from the work machine) I looked again at the "Shoe" print and I am not convinced it is any kind of mark, old new or otherwise. Now I am thinking Fossil...

I'm pretty sure that's a horse buried upside down...

Looks like he had a Democrat walking around on his land.

Ya know JW in Texas you can use force to remove a trespasser from your property.

Great picture of the Blooming Ocotillo. I nominate it for the next batch of TFL postcards.

So, you got that hen to lay, eh? It'll take a lot of those eggs to make a Field Lab Omelette.

That horse shoe print definitely looks convex. More great desert art.

I think Magdalene wins the prize.

1. one of only 2 ocotillos that grow on my property
2. a parakeet egg from my friend Chuck
3. a print from a burro that looks like it must have a shoe

and now you know...the rest of the story.
