Ocotillo Bloom

The Ocotillo are getting close to blooming.

These buds will open up to be small bright red flowers.
They remind me of candy corn which I liked to eat when a little guy. 


  1. Beautiful buds. Please post a pic when the flowers open.

  2. I love ocotillo blooms (as do the hummingbirds). Just getting caught up on some of your posts, and sorry I haven't been by in a while. Really enjoyed "Abandoned Homestead" and "Desert Still Life", but they are all interesting and good reads.

  3. Very pretty, hope to see them when they open.
