Desert wildflowers~Nature's Notes~032813

I stayed home today, mainly to visit the county animal shelter to look for my gray male outdoor cat.  He wasn't there and they didn't open until 10:00 a.m., so I drove out Thousand Palms Canyon Road to see the wildflowers.  NOT!  There were very few of them and the ones that were blooming were very straggly and unhealthy-looking.  Not enough rainfall this year...sigh...Plus there is a massive invasion of the darn Sahara mustard which is choking out the resident wildflowers.  These are the ones I found along the roadside...not very many indeed.  Nature Notes for March 28, 2013.  My cat showed up for dinner tonight!  He must have been sleeping in somebody else's house during the day because I combed both the front yard and back yard looking for him!  To visit Nature Notes, please go to:   http://ramblingwoods.com/

You found a nice assortment along the road. Each one is quite pretty. Maybe next year will be better, flower-wise. Have a nice weekend; it's almost here!
