My quest for wildflowers was successful as you can see by the following pictures. Unfortunately I do not know the names of the flowers, but this first flower might be a Bladderpod Mustard.
This I also know is a Mexican Gold Poppy.
This little blossom was in the middle of the path being protected by a rock.
There were bees all throughout my hike taking advantage of the many blossoms, this bee was busy on this Blue Lupine.
The hillsides were covered with yellow breaking through the rocks and cactus.
This time of year is spectacular for wildflowers in the desert. I will continue my quest over the next month or so to bring you (hopefully) the best pictures of the beautiful colors against the contrasting landscape. Wildflower season is just beginning and I'm excited to continue with hikes on new trails and of course trails I've visited before. You never know what will be around the next bend in the path. Until the next edition - "Happy Trails".
