Whew, the weatherman claims we'll be in the mid to low 90s for a while, watt a relief. Mind you, I like it hot but for now it won't hurt my feelings for it to be a bit cooler. I got a few photos of the weed I've always thought was kinda pretty although if I try to pull them out I do have to wear leather gloves, the stems and leaves have teeny barbs on em which is really hard to get outta the skin once they're in. I found the name of them on a website, they're called rock columbine .... well, it does look similar so I figure it's some kinda columbine. Do meadows in your area have these flowers? Most desert flora here tends to be either yellow, orange or red but these little dilly are tween blue and purple.

I have the feeling these were brought to the desert by Europeans who wanted a touch of their homeland in their yards, do the ones you plant also have those teeny thorns? How do you breath in all that humidity? I'm so glad we don't get high humidity here on the border of NM and TX.
