Our "mustards," only a few of which are native, are nowhere to be seen, not like your beautiful Velvety Nerisyrenia.
They are beautiful, Scott; they bloom early, and they last through a good bit of the summer.
Haven't stopped by in a while - but your Autho post reminded me that I should. Beautiful pictures, as always. I think I'd like the desert - at least, the parts that you share.
Hey, thanks Jennifer! Glad you stopped by.
Despite its name, the turkey vulture is an impressive creature.
