Desert greenery

After the wettest winter for nearly fifty years, the Qatar desert is unusually green. Indeed, a Bedouin friend told me that there he does not currently have to any provide fodder for his camels, as there is now sufficient grazing for them to survive on.

The green is especially concentrated in dips. We also spotted many examples of wild oats, such as those photographed below.
