desert summer flowers Sunday, September 21, 2008











The desert southwest has an amazing variety of sunflowers. Some grow naturally by the roads and our roads are now covered with them. I have a friend who threw out some seeds in her yard and now her yard is covered by them! Here are some pics of the sunflowers and other flowers currently in bloom. Aren't they pretty?

All ours are now dead due to the cold nights. Bummer! They are pretty though!

We're just starting to cool down here in the desert southwest...nights down into the 60's (finally!) Pretty soon, the daytime temps will go back down into the 90's and 80's (double digits).

Thanks for your visit to my blog- I really like yours! What a treat to find another one that celebrates the desert! You have some great pictures!

Those sunflowers look absolutely gorgeous! I wish I had a garden to be able to grow flowers like these :(. I do buy summer flowers for inside my home though. I have an arrangement of pink Peonies on my coffee table, and they add a lovely splash of colour to the room.
