|Close up of flowers and developing fruits|
Along the Phoneline trail, I noticed a bushy plant in bloom that I didn't recognize. I knew what it wasn't, but didn't know what it was. (That happens frequently.) Asked my Honey-Matt to take some photos, then did some digging. It's in the Madder Family, like Button Bush (Cephalanthus occidentalis) (which blooms after the monsoons) - and is called Desert Bedstraw (Galium stellatum var. eremicum). Go out and take a look!
