Desert Globemallow...

One year, probably fifteen years ago, we caught the Desert Globemallow in bloom in the lower reaches of Rodriguez and Oriflamme Canyons, with hundreds of specimens within an easy walk of the road.  Ever since then, every time we travel these roads I keep searching for these beautiful flowers.  Debbie spotted one on Thursday – the only one we saw on the entire trip – no more than a foot from Rodriguez Canyon Road.  It was mostly done with blooming; just a few individual blossoms left of what must have been hundreds on this one plant.  Dang it!
