Here are the odd and prickly desert wildflowers that I encountered last weekend.
This is a Bull Thistle. I love the sound of that, its gonna be my new curse word. Bull Thistle!
This is some sort of Monkey Flower that has no chlorophyll what so ever. Weird.
The always attractive Baby Shit Brown Snapdragon. Wildly popular with the summer bride.
And my personal favorite, the Horned Devil Paintbrush. Rock on little foliage!
