Sand Verbena and Desert Lilies

Sand Verbena and Desert Lily. Amboy Crater. Mojave Desert, California2008 was an interesting year for desert wildflowers. A few areas – including Amboy Crater (shown here) – received a lot of winter rain, while other locations that typically flower were absent of wildflowers.

I referred to Spring 2008 as the “Year of Desert Lilies”, as I cannot ever recall seeing them as widespread and plentiful throughout the desert as I did in 2008. I’m hoping for another awesome spring.
