Wildflower Season

Tuesday, March 23, 2010
It's not the best year but there are some great finds of wildflowers for those willing to look.  Sometimes that requires looking down as many desert wildflowers are small.  These beauties, known as Wild Heliotrope or Blue-eyed Scorpion Weed exhibit tiny flowers about 1/4" across. The fern-like leaves and the coiled, scorpion tail arrangement or "fiddleneck coils" of the flowers are characteristic of this wildflower.
