Flower Friday - From the Desert Archives
I had to go to the archives for these ones - desert spring flowers! In brilliant purple, this 4 o'clock flower opens everyday in the late afternoon and stays open until the following morning. It is pollinated by nocturnal insects - a neat trick for a flower that lives in such a hot area as the desert.
Behind Shyla, some yellow flowers were blooming at the base of a cliff. Rock wall bases are great for flowers because rain drips down off the wall onto them. I love seeing the combination of the red rock and colorful flowers!
Happy Flower Friday! Before too long, I should have some early mountain wildflowers to share!
