Desert flowers

The desert often appears dry, barren, and inhospitable, but in the springtime, it can explode with color. This has been a great year for wildflowers because we had several good rains over the winter.

As the weather has gotten warmer, many flowers have already withered. It's a dramatic reminder that "All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls off, but the word of the Lord endures forever" (1 Pet. 1:24-25).

Thankfully, before the flowers died, I was able to get some good photos for this slideshow. Two of these shots were taken by my Aunt Shay, two by Natalie, and the rest I took myself. If anyone knows the identity of the untitled yellow bush, I would love to know.
