Bloomin' Bells!

Sand Bells, All photos by Matt Ball
This specific plant is blooming in the wash - that has pieces of a rusted drainage cylinder - on the main path. Sand Bells Nama hispidum are in the Borage Family, as are the next two 'bells.'

Whispering Bells
Saw these blooming on the Phone Line Link Trail. Whispering Bells Emmenanthe penduliflora.

Desert Bells
These are blooming in my yard, but they are found in Sabino Canyon, too. They are non-native, but seem to have naturalized themselves (like many of us). Desert Bells Phacelia campanularia.
