~ Hummingbird Food ~
Some years, the desert floor is covered with wildflowers: lupine, mexican poppy, and others. This year, that didn't happen. I don't know why.
Regardless, and right on cue, the Ocotillo plants, which look for all the world like a bunch of dead sticks, pushed out their red flames all across the desert. This is the time that the hummingbirds come north, crossing the desert. It's the Ocotillo that provides the nourishment they need, in the form of nectar, so that those of you in the northwest will have the joy of seeing these jewel-like birds in a few weeks.
