Joshua Trees at sunset

Joshua Tree flowers..they are related to the lily family

recent rains have brought out the wild flowers..with the recent high temps ( today it was 97f in the shade in Palm Springs) these  flowers will most likely be dead in 2 weeks

Cholla Cactus

The Moon rising over Joshua Tree

The flowers on these 2 photos are really small
