Wild Blooms

Late summer wild flowers dot the desert floor.

Datura grows in sandy soil and often right from rocks. Poisonous to humans it has a long reputation for causing delirium and can cause death. Historically known as a love potion and witches brew.

Desert Poppy, aka Arizona poppy, is smaller than the poppies of spring. It is a creeper and now dots the desert floor. Especially seen along the freeway south to Noglaes.
