Unique among the wildflowers

Most of the year
it's not seen.
Then in the spring,
an inconspicuous part
of the desert landscape,
comes alive
in pinkish puffs,
formed by numerous
pink stamens.

Fairy Duster is the
name. One can imagine a
little fairy dusting the desert

From afar and close up, we can see
where this desert shrub gets its name.
