Thought this was a desert? It's a magic carpet of purple wildflowers (but these Scorpion Weeds come with their own bite)

The cracks in the parched earth are clearly visible, but for a few short weeks - every few years - this remote section of desert is transformed into a magic carpet of purple. The wildflower Scorpion Weed takes over this corner of the Mojave Desert in southwestern Utah when the conditions are right.

Soft warm rays of sunshine beaming through the tall trees onto bright blooming wild flowers sprinkled across the forest floor…♥

Woodland garden. Beautiful. Unfortunately my two dogs would romp through it and leave nothing but colorful, trampled carnage in their wake.
