This winter's rains mean FLOWER-GEDDON in the Anza-Borrego Desert! This is described as one of the best blooms in twenty years, so we had to go see it! (On Friday, hence the title of this post--I know it's Tuesday!)
This is the back road in...
Ocotillo (a whole forest of them!)
Wild buckwheat (I think).
Cholla that jumped onto B.'s boot.
Desert sage (?).
Caterpillar of the sphinx moth (BIG!).
Sculptures by Ricardo Breceda (there were a lot more).
Wildly in love with my husband B., guardian of Miss Tallulah Mae (the wonder dog), adorer of all canines, editor of books, dilettantish crafter, vintage shopper, lover of libraries, neophyte cellist, and foziewisp.
