Michael and I took a quick 5 mile drive off road to Coyote Canyon to check out the wildflowers and were surprised to see as many flowers as we did. It was apparent that flash flooding and a fair amount of water passed through the area recently and flowers were quite abundant. I think that the peak bloom will still be a week away though. We did see more Primrose and Verbena and several Desert Lilies and Desert Dandelions. It was a fabulous day and the sun was out and the temperature was a mild 74 degrees. Henderson Canyon had more Primroses then yesterday and Indian Head Ranch was filled with Dandelions. I can’t wait for the yellow and orange from the desert Sunflowers and Poppies to paint the desert a profusion of color.
