A Postcard a day 1 August 2015 Desert in bloom and envelope exchange

Good morning and happy August!

I hope that you are all enjoying the summer and able to get away for a bit, (on holiday/vacation) to a nice place.
August in this country (Spain) spells 'hot and dry'. This week I also received a postcard of an area that is hot and dry: the desert. Hot and dry doesn't mean 'dead'.

This card shows a desert in bloom:

Beautiful! The flowers are Sand Verbena and Desert Lilies and they flower in February on sandy flats. Desert lilies send up foot-high stems bearing large white, trumpet-shaped flowers that resemble Easter lilies. Sand verbena are bright pink, trumpet-shaped, fragrant flowers that are 2 to 3 inches wide.

The other piece of mail that I received yesterday was my second envelope in the July envelope exchange. 

Really pretty! I like it. The stamps are nice too:
The top stamp shows Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming and the bottom stamp of course is Uncle Sam.

That's it from me today. Tomorrow is another day.

Until then,
