In Search of Desert Wildflowers


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.

So pretty! I hear the wildflowers in California are putting on such a show that there are traffic jams in places.

Oh absolutely! It doesn't take much rain to transform the landscape. Wildflowers are a sight for sore eyes after the cold of winter .

Wow! Beautiful blooms! I'm surprised you have lupines there. I wouldn't have thought they'd like such a dry environment. (Considering they also grow in England!)
