As promised … another photoblog sharing the bountiful color of the Sonoran desert (Click to enlarge — please, they’re better that way! — and see my previous desert wildflower post, Desert Bouquet I).
Lone lupine among a sea of pincushions.
Unidentified. Anyone know?
New Mexico Plumeseed (chicory).
Saguaro seen through blooming palo verde.
Next week, I’ll share the blues, purples, pinks and fuchsias of the desert! Hope things are warming up in your neck of the woods (or if you live here, cooling down. It’s been in the 90s for more than a week now).
This has been such a tough winter for so many of my family and friends who don’t live in the desert southwest. A visual desert bouquet seemed like the perfect ‘gift’ to help warm everyone up as they look forward to spring (Yes, while it’s officially here, for many, spring ushered in more of the white stuff).
As my last photo blog indicated, I recently took a photography class and hope that some of what I learned shows up in the desert wildflower photos below. This time: yellow, purple and orange flowers. Next post: blues, whites and reds. (As usual, you may find it worthwhile to click on each photo to enlarge).
Of course, I have to start with a series of Mexican poppies!
Desert mariposa lily.
For Readers, Writers, Everyone. Did this past winter keep you down? What did you do to stay sane (and warm)? Read any books? Binge watch any shows? Write anything set in a warmer climate? Dream of a beach vacation? Stay warm, my friends. Keep reading. Keep writing. Keep living. Keep dreaming. Sunshine is on the way!
