Comet Blazing Star
March 22, 2007
I found this flower blooming in a small wash below Grapevine Hill, but I couldn't figure out what it was; the other Blazing Stars that I have seen in Colorado and Utah were much larger. I finally identified it when I found it in a wildflower book. I took 2 books with me and bought 4 more. Like I said, you can never have enough wildflower ID books! No wonder I am nearly always within just a couple of pounds below the 50-pound baggage limit!
