Soon I'll be headed for the Crane Festival in Monte Vista, March 8-10. I've been there many times and this year I'll present my PowerPoint entitled "WHOOPERS!"
I'm a native of Colorado, but years ago I left to teach school in Las Vegas, Nev. There I met the native plants of the Mojave Desert and I've been amazed and enamored by all native plants since then.
A few weeks ago, when we'd had our first frost, I checked out the sagebrush by our garage. This native blooms in the fall and it still had erect clusters of small, yellowish flowers.
