No matter where you live, I think everyone loves spring.  The snow finally melts, it starts to warm up, the flowers start blooming… But of all the places I’ve lived, the desert is definitely my favorite for enjoying wildflowers.  I think the fact that the desert can seem so desolate and dry makes you appreciate the flowers all the more.

Here are some common flowers you’ll see in the desert of Southeastern Utah:
