Photo Friday: Bring me (to) flowers

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
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.

  1. The sand verbena looks like it's stretching out in the sun. Or - taking a darker turn - it could be trying to crawl off. Mwahaha! :)

    Right now, I have a vase full of gorgeous tulips - all pinks and oranges. Love them!

    1. I was struck by the geometry of the verbena--all the plants seemed to form tidy right angles, though most of them were a bit more obscured by vegetation.

  2. Very nice collection of flowers you showed,did like the contrast in the first with the dark sky & yellow flowers. To answer your question on why I don't usually post photos of churches it is because I feature them in another blog called The Church Explorer, there is a link on my blogs side bar

    1. Ah...that makes sense!

      Yes, I love the sky/light contrast you get when weather is building.

  3. Flowers are so amazing to look at. One of the best photographic subjects you can find.

    1. I love them. I'm particularly fond of the desert and alpine flowers, in part because they seem such delicate things to be growing in such unlikely places!
