other flowers

The poppies overshadow the other flowers because there are so many of them and they are so bright. I like the smaller flowers, the ones that seem to serve as poppy compliments but are lovely in their own way. I have hiked all over, and when you hit water, it's great--either snowmelted freezing or swimming pool at the end of the day.

snow on the mountain, gold on the hills

I have enough photos of flowers now. My computer is going to throw up if I ask it to download anymore flowers.

Last night I ate a deep fried avacado, and it was very good. Going south to Mexico today. I like Mexico.

intrepid flower search

mexican poppy day.

I went to Sells, AZ, capital of the Tohono O'odham nation. I know someone there, and it is faster to ask a native person where plants are than spend all day wandering--and they have a great restaurant there. Anyway, what I want to say is this: living in southern Arizona means getting used to being watched and hassled by authorities-- either border, immigration or DEA. You cannot be out in the desert wandering around without a helicopter checking you out, being stopped by the DEA and told to get the hell out of there, or being stopped 45 miles inside the US border from Mexico at an immigration and customs checkpoint. I am so not used to this, and it is giving me the creeps. I saw a woman taken away in handcuffs at the border checkpoint. So it's not all flowers, guys, not at all.
