I did a search for some desert wildflowers last weekend and I didn't have to go far to find some. They were blooming along roadways.....
....and on desert slopes. Above are some arroyo lupine and up top, some yellow brittle bush blooms.
Here is a big cluster of globe mallow displaying those pretty orange blooms.

I love it when we have enough rain to bring out these beauties.
