Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate

Delicate Belly Flowers

Delicate Belly Flowers

In the spring time the arid desert comes alive. It is not something someone driving by would see, they may see a flash of yellow or white among the native plants though. Of course the sage, buckwheat, burro and creosote bushes also come alive in spring, but lets focus now on belly flowers which you see in these pictures. Ask anyone who spends time in the desert and they will tell the tale of the belly flowers. Have you heard of them? Belly flowers are not the scientific names of these delicate gems but they are the ones you have to get on your belly to see, belly flowers! If you look closely in the bottom picture you will see it is adorned with both white and yellow belly flowers. At my home if we have good rain in winter and fall the ground looks as though God has thrown fuzzy blankets on the ground. I am blessed with a beautiful flower show every year, how lucky am I?
