Desert bloom

After posting the "drunken animals" clip (below), I looked for additional clips from the source film "Animals are Beautiful People," and found the one above. "Sivatagi" seems not to be a place; as best I can tell it's Hungarian for "desert." The movie was filmed in subtropical Africa, so the desert depicted is probably the Kalahari or the Namib, or a combination (not that it matters). What I found interesting was that the flowers depicted (presumably in the springtime or post-rains) included prominent displays of asters, which in our climate are fall-blooming perennials. Perhaps in other climes asters bloom in other seasons.

A pleasant video to watch as those of us in the Upper Midwest await the full bloom of spring.

  1. So beautiful! The daisies blooming in the dry, cracked mud!

    Spring will come to Minnesota. Eventually.
