Here are some little desert flowers from our NM trip.

This is a website we often use for identifying wildflowers around here in Tucson. It's very easy to use and very useful. We've got a load of books too. ;)

Ooooh! More lovely Iris!

Between rain showers over the weekend I took my very shiny new toy out in the garden...a camera I have a lot to learn about! Still, I'm going to have fun trying to work it all out :)

A callistemon just after the rain...

Your new toy looks very good Aunty. The water drops on the callistemon really stand out well. :D

Oooo! Gorgeous Irises Jaz. :D We have some out front, just a light purple. Do you happen to know the names of the bottom two you took pictures of?

Aunty, your flower pics are beautiful too! Doesn't look like you're having any problem getting used to the new camera.

Sorry, Catch-up. I saw so many, I lost track of most of the names. You might be able to find it on their website: http://napairis.com/

Loved the piccies, Aunty. Am jealous of the SNT tho. ;) :D
