  10. Wow! ! !
    I grew up in the California desert and beach areas and have never seen these.
    They are just toooo beautiful to bear.
    Now I will ask my brother who lives in the California high desert if he knows of these.
    Thanks for brightening my day.
    Hugs,
    Gerry

  18. These flowers are so freaky. Whenever I encounter them I photograph them too. They are like a caricature, or something ... it's hard to believe they are real.
