A Few Unknowns

These flowers I was unable to identify with any certainty.

This one here had a very nice design deep inside.

Yellow is the most common color of flowers in the desert it seems.

 If I have seen this plant before I most certainly have never seen the seed pods.

There are some very oddly different plants in the desert and for a good reason too no doubt.
This adaptation must insure its continued survival in some way.


  1. I hope you don't expect me to tell you their names :)

  2. Not strictly "unknown" - you know the flowers, you just don't know what other people call them. There seems no end to the variations which nature can dream up.

  3. Indeed beautiful desert plants. I like them.

  4. Really unusual plant, Tom. Yellow does seem to be the cactus color, either yellow or white, but we did have some bloom with a fuscia.

  5. Interesting seed pods. I see a lot of yellow in the desert, too.

  6. What interesting see pods. Look like a giant pea. The yellows against the harsh earth are so pretty. I bet it is a real treat for your eyes when you come up upon them. They look to be very happy and well adapted to their location.
