Flowers of the Desert :: Chuparosa

Next up on our desert flower adventure - Chuparosa!


This red lovely could be found all along the roadside in the scruffy brush.

To be honest I don't know too much about it other than it's red and I was able to take a few pictures of it.  Of all the flowers I didn't really bond with this one.  Is that strange?  That I'm concerned about my lack of flower bonding?


Because it was so bountiful I was able to take a photos on a few separate occasions.

I'll admit that snapping some of these photos meant I looked like a total crazy lady on the side of the road.  You know the one who's perched precariously on a rock outcropping while huge semi's drive by gawking?  Yep, that one.


In a mostly brown sort of golden desert this red blossom was a welcome sight!
