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.

This looks like Coral Fountains...or a variety of it. Maybe I'm wrong, but they produce these beautiful flowers again this time of year. Great pics!!! And a plant the hummingbirds love to be around:)

Yes they are adorable, and your photos too, but that header is perfect.

Hi - I think this is a case where the quest to find the name of the plant could get in the way of simply seeing that it is wonderful!

Wonderful photo. I'm guessing these flowers attract the humming birds?

Red flowers always catch my attention. Those are unusual but then, again, I live on the East coast. No desert here.
