And Jacquemontia (Jacquemontia pringlei) is blooming. Yes, it's in the Morning Glory Family!

Coulter Hibiscus (Hibiscus coulteri) is in the Mallow family and is peeking out from under bushes and trees; this one is blooming among Foothills Palo Verde (Parkinsonia microphylla) branches.

And finally: Fred finds a fruit! In my post about bloom night, I mentioned that the Night-blooming Cereus in the canyon has bloomed much earlier. Fred sent this photo of a fruit on the plant in front of the women's restroom by the visitor center.
