Mohave Desert Wildflowers

Hello Everyone. Today I spent the afternoon with my husband while he worked on  the claim and I took pictures of this years spring wildflowers. The high desert is beautiful this time of year. Temperature was about 80 making it a beautiful day.
Bigalow Coreopsis

Hedgehog Cactus

Beavertail / Opuntia

Joshua Trees and Sage

I`ll  have a few more pictures in my next post. I try not to post too much about the flowers. They are here for a short time and add a lot beauty to our area despite the arid environment..

Have a great week!


  1. Catherine, I have been amazed when I have seen gorgeous tiny plants surviving under harsh conditions in our desert areas in central australia. Those lovely flowers bring your desert to life.
