The rains about two weeks ago produced sufficient runoff from pastures farther upstream to maintain a water flow in Salt Creek, an intermittent creek that runs through the ranchito. You can turn up your sound volume and hear the burble of water flowing over and down sedimentary rock.
This is the first sustained water flow — beyond thunderstorm rains — since before the drought.
The Gyp Indian Blanket is one of my favorite wildflowers. They are so free-standing, tall and bunched together like a family.
The vetch is knee-high near the house and in the far field it is waist-high in some places. I like this photograph because of the contrast — yucca and delicate vetch blossoms.
My photography of every new-emergent flower continues. I have several varieties backlogged in pictures. Today I have taken several photographs of the Stork’s Bill blossom and will post them soon.
