Spring Slam III: Wildflower Overload
Photos by Greg and Trina
I came into spring with low expectations. Thinking that our dry season would leave us with few wildflowers But I kept seeing a surprising number of plants creeping upward out of the desert soil when we were out riding or walking. What were these plants thinking, besides that they'd just wither and die? Then the weather turned wetter and the flowers began to charge forth. And they've been charging forth with enthusiasm ever since.
Here's a gallery of mostly wild flowers from our wanderings in secret and not-so-secret corners of the "desert".
These two from city trees that nevertheless seemed to be "wildly" blooming.
One of our spring favorites: Pucoon!
