This pretty brittle bush was blooming when I hobbled about, attempting to walk last weekend. No, the knee isn't any better. In fact, it hurts MORE! I cut short my walk, but not before taking a photo of this bright bush against the background of our local snow-covered mountains. Our World Tuesday for March 20, 2012.

UPDATE: This is a desert brittle bush (Encilia faranosa), which is a member of the sunflower family. The flowers actually do look like tiny sunflowers. The desert is covered with these colorful shrubs right now and they dot the landscape..
