Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

Yellow flowers~Mellow Yellow Monday~040411


I found these yellow flowers up at the Living Desert Reserve. I believe they are the yellow version of the Mexican Bird of Paradise, but I could be wrong. Any ideas? Mellow Yellow for April 4, 2011. Please visit: http://mellowyellowmonday.blogspot.com/

Maybe....or perhaps the Cassia. Can't see enough of the leaves to tell for sure but what is for sure is that they are very pretty.

I think you are right. Mine are starting to look like this....it's the yellow version and the leaves on the branch indicate that you've nailed it on the head.

I don't know what they are but very pretty!!! I love the yellows out here in the desert--such a pop of color.
