We had a play day yesterday where we did some errands, had lunch out, and drove around looking for and at wildflowers which are just reaching their peak in the valley at this point. Here we have the ubiquitous Brittle Bush, which grace the sides of highways and roads, probably as much for erosion control as beauty, but they are very cheerful.
Shots of the poppies and cactus, along with a few lupines north of Lake Pleasant. On the sunny slopes of these hills the poppies were wonderful, growing in great patches around the saguaros.
