After yesterday’s gloomy post, I thought I would post something a little brighter! In 2005 I arrived here near the end of February and missed the peak wildflowers. This year, they are just now getting good. The yellow flowers (Brittlebush) you see here are just now starting to come into bloom in a few places. On the other hand, it has been a great year for Chuparosa (aka hummingbird-bush) – the red plant you see here. Together, the two make a great combination!
