Linda and I took a stroll up a wash on the west side of the Tucson Mountains to enjoy the blooms of the day. It was 3/24/2009. I don't know wether to post in C&S or Native Plants so I'll do both.
We only needed to walk about a mile and wore out the camera battery. Here are a few of the blooms we enjoyed.

Hello Ed ,

Among your pictures , there was one that you wanted IDed ;

Would it be Solanum elaeagnifolium – Silverleaf Nightshade ;

lonediver,
Thanks for the offering. I doubt it is Solanum elaeagnifolium for two reasons.
1. In the high resolution image(not online) it is clear that the stamen are NOT fused.
2. I have never seen one of these larger than 6-8 inches and the gardening description states
it grows as a shrub up to several feet high.

Many thanks for the input,
AZED
