Greetings from the desert...

I'm in Palm Desert for  a few days on what has become an annual excursion with a group of fun gal pals. We have a busy~bee itinerary of playing tennis, watching tennis at the BNP Paribas tennis tournament, eating, drinking and making each other merry. 


We're staying at La Quinta a beautiful little resort in Palm Dessert that is loaded with adobe charm and covered in beautiful botanics. 


The air is thick with the ethereal scent of the grapefruit blossoms from the rows of fruited trees throughout the property. 


I need to run to the tournament soon but I just wanted to bring you a little sampling of the sunshine to brighten your weekend.


With a quick tour around the grounds. 






I hope you have a great weekend!

Emily, you picked the right moment to be in the desert! It is RAINING so hard right now. Coincidentally, I just finished a palm tree illustration - think I may have to do another one inspired by your lovely photo! Have fun! XO
