Jewel in the Desert

In an area where scrawny little sagebrush shrubs outnumber trees a gazillion to one, this windbreak seen near Emblem is a lush oasis. From the highway, Hubby and I could identify golden willow, limber pine, blue spruce, birch, and apple trees.

Here in the high desert, trees just don’t grow tall and full like these. I myself am just an amateur windbreaker, but I know enough to recognize that this jewel is a product of much cultivation, consistent irrigation, and great love!
