Wildflower Extravaganza

This is turning out to be a fabulous wildflower year. There are things blooming all the way from the valley bottoms up to 10,000 feet, where little buttercups are poking out next to melting snowbanks. Yesterday Desert Boy and I encountered purple fields of Phacelia covering the foothills. So today we're out and about, searching for more color in the usually drab desert landscape.

Here's a closeup of the pretty flower, notch-leaved phacelia (Phacelia crenulata). 
Go outside and have a good weekend!
