Wild Year for Wild Flowers
It all started when we went to Death Valley for the super bloom. The super bloom has just continued everywhere we have been so far this year. Going through Nebraska and South Dakota, there were flowers everywhere. I showed you photos of the Glacier Lily in Utah that were more numerous than I have ever seen. Going to Arizona last week was exactly the same. I have never seen more flowers, all over, than there are this year.
These beauties were in Prescott on one of the hikes I did. Prickly Poppy. They were so thin, and translucent.
These were in Prescott too. Evening Primrose, so beautiful.
This isn’t a flower, it’s just fuzzy lambs ear, but I love the texture of it.
Leaving Prescott and coming back to Utah we went through Page and the Navajo reservation. We’ve done this drive many times and I’ve never seen these pinkish, purplish flowers before, and they were everywhere. Against the red sand they were striking.
The other day I went walking with the pooches up the canyon here and saw these flowers. These were new to me also. And again, in an area I have walked many times.
Are the flowers going crazy where you live too?
