Photo detail

The Lost Dutchman State Park is again expected to put on a nice wildflower show this year. The wildflowers, like these poppies from last year, have not started to bring their spring joy to visitors, but are expected to do so within a week. A parasalior gets a bird’s view of the wildflowers.

Chasing wildflowers: Rare enough to treasure

I confess. I’m hooked, addicted, helpless in the grip of my need. Blame the poppies. Not the French Connection heroin poppies — but the tiny seeds that can wait for decades with indestructible patience in stoney desert soils for a year such as this — a mild spring following along behind a decently wet winter after a decade of drought.
