Spring Color in the Desert

When I tell people I live in the Sonoran Desert, they often say, “How dull, I could never live there. It’s all brown and tan.” Not always. Here’s what Spring looks like in the desert.

The orange flowers are Desert Globemallow, the red are Easton Penstemon, the pink are Desert Pennyroyal, and the yellow are Desert Marigold.
