SAND VERBENA - This plant grows in local sand dunes. In years with enough rain you can see massive fields of its purple flowers covering the open desert. It grows low to the ground.
BROWN-EYED PRIMROSE - Flowers are creamy white with brown spots in the center.
Arizona Lupine - Shades of lavender and purple on a stalk with palmate leaves.
Our neighborhood is mostly built out with homes, curbs and gutters. In spite of the urbanization there are still pockets of nature popping up everywhere, if you keep your eyes open.
