In honor of Valentine's Day this week, I'll share some of the many flowers that my husband, rather than bringing to me, and gone with me to see. I like it better that way. (I don't promise I haven't shared any of these photos before).

First the desert. Most of these are from Death Valley or Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in southern California.
Brittlebush, the old reliable. There's usually some in even the driest years.
Brown-eyed primrose
Sand verbena
Phacelia
Beavertail cactus.
Into the heart of the beavertail
Prickly poppy in the Panamint Dunes, Death Valley NP
Desert primrose, Eureka Dunes, East Mojave Natural Preserve.

On second thoughts, I think I'll let the mountains wait until another time! Have a great weekend, and my the flowers in your life be as nice as these.
