A Wildflower Adventure – Part 3

March 17, 2019 at 7:14 am (California, Nature, Nature photography, Photography, Wildflowers) (, , )

At the risk of having repeats, I’m going to extol the virtues of a wildflower bloom in the Anza-Borrego desert, mainly by letting the photos speak for themselves.

I didn’t venture far from the car for these images, which were taken along DiGorgio Rd early in the morning, and into Coyote Canyon as far as Desert Gardens, and June Wash for the most part.

Painted lady butterflies were also in “bloom” by the hundreds of thousands.

Century plants were just beginning to send up their “asparagus” flower stalks (with a few bearing greenish flowers), and a few ocotillos bore their brilliant red tips.

The splash of purple along the S-22 road is visible from quite a distance, as are the cars alongside the road.

The Arroyo Salado campground was also awash in color, including a good selection of desert lilies.

Stay tuned for more wildflowers and landscapes from Anza-Borrego!
