We took a ride out onto the desert last week to see if their were any wildflowers blooming yet. We found a few plus we had a good time and Tuffee got to run for a while.

I see this tiny purple wild flower out in the desert but don't know it's name, either. The flowers are only about a half inch in size, and the leaves are smaller and kind of gray green in color. The plant looks like a bush and usually only about 6 to 10 inches tall and about the same wide.

We had a native yucca decide to bloom in my neighbors yard. It was right against the fence between the two yards but officially on their side. But I did take some photos of it. There are lots of different yuccas in New Mexico and the yucca is our state flower. There are lots of different kinds of native yuccas but this one is the kind that grows wild in and around Rio Rancho and Albuquerque. Most people think of the much larger type of yucca when you mention yuccas but those don't grow wild here but there are several landscape nursies that sell them and if you are careful you can get them to grow here. They do grow wild in the southwestern section of the state in Grant County.

We went to Jemez Mountains about a week ago and saw 3 mule deer. You can tell they are mule deer due to the size of their ears. This one was really close and I got a decent photo of her. I was suprised it came out this good as it was almost dark when I took it.
