A rare find in the desert, this Ajo Lily was the highlight of my day today. Searching for wildflowers, I found a huge patch of these in Borrego Springs, about an hour's drive south of La Quinta. You would have thought I just walked into a candy shop and was told everything was free. I couldn't take enough pictures. Ajo comes from the Spanish word for garlic. I'm not sure why, as this beautiful flower does not smell anything like garlic or look like it.
