As we were driving from Yuma to Phoenix, the desert was suddenly splashed with the color of brittle bush flowers.  It was gorgeous and reminded me of how much beauty  is added to our lives by flowers  – whether growing wild, in our gardens or in our homes.  The brittle bush in bloom changed the vista from pleasant to breathtaking!! 

Here’s a link to show you a photo and also to tell you about the brittlebush plant, which is related to the sunflower.  http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/brittle_bush.htm

For those of you who live in or are visiting the desert, I hope you enjoy the views of spring!!
