Desert Wildflowers Overview
Feb 18, 2019 - The wildflowers have started their bloom early this year in many areas. It looks like it's going to be a very good year for wildflowers, maybe even a super bloom. A major rain storm on 2/14/19 in California and Arizona added water for the wildflowers and more rain is coming this week. More new updates below.

Photo tips: Most digital point-and-shoot cameras have a macro function - usually symbolized by the icon of a little flower. When you turn on that function, you allow your camera to get closer to the subject, looking into a flower for example. Or getting up close and personal with a bug. More on desert photography and wildflower photos.
Water Conservation Gardening. The vast majority of the water being used is wasted through evaporation, leaks, and run-off. Homeowners are not using the most efficient ways to water their landscaping and gardens. Not only are they wasting water, but they are increasing their monthly water bills. There are many ways that desert residents can have the gardens they desire while conserving precious water.
