Super Bloom Part 2 - Local Canyons

Mary Austin's Land of Little Rain describes the area where we live, unbearable heat and dryness punctuated by violent storms.  And sometimes it is that way.  Other years we get rain from winter storms, and then the glory of desert flowers.  Ephemeral and lovely.  This was one of those years.

Indian Paintbrush
Evening Snow

Charlotte's Phacilia.  One of my favorites.

Yes, there is a waterfall when it has rained.


Our sunny day ended with rain just as we got to the car.

Caterpillar Phacilia and Coreopsis

We had a lovely day flower peeping with our friend Terri.
