To prove a point about the exceptional growth and bloom this Spring in the southern Utah desert, today we went flower hunting. The five examples you see here were found in places where such plants were not growing in recent years. The delightful Indian Paintbrush, seen in the middle picture, was previously found in scattered locations on the town overlook, but this year appeared in drifts.

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
