Bloomin' New Mexico
(Picture taken near Pecos, New Mexico - unidentified flower at the roadside)
We have never been in New Mexico in August before. So we were unprepared for what the July monsoon season brought: flowers and bushes in brilliant bloom!
We have many things we can identify and some we cannot.
Our Russian sage is in full brilliant purple bloom and attracting hummingbirds.
Butterflies are coming to our fern bush and butterfly bush.
Something called a Blue Spirea is about to burst into bloom in our courtyard.
There are other flowers here which I cannot identify as I never saw them before in Kansas.
