This was from sunrise this morning – these are the coolest desert flowers around!
I think recent cold weather has delayed the bloom a bit, it is warmer this week and I hope that spurs more blooming by the weekend. Brittlebush for example is almost always in bloom by now, but not this year. But, like fall colors, thing can seemingly change overnight.
Unfortunately, some of the famous roadside fields like the ones along Henderson Canyon Road have been taken over with mustard. I’m doing a lot of scouting this week and have found some nice little areas, but the windshield drive by flower viewer might be disappointed by this years show despite all the rain – we will know soon!
By the way, I received a nice mention by being included on this list of 50 amazing nature photography blogs.
