Desert start, also called “belly flowers” – at 1/2 cm width and about that tall, you have to get down to your belly to appreciate.


Desert Zinnia, perhaps?

Fremont Pincushion


Desert Lupine


Teddy Bear Cholla bloom


Claret cup hedgehog

Another hedgehog

Apricot mallow

Desert Canterbury Bells

Mojave Aster

Indian Paintbrush
