    • I’m sure it was, Allen…but I was gone and off the mountain by that time….

  2. The bold, rich colors in your images are the perfect lift for these cold gray February days.

    • I’m glad they could warm things up for you a bit, Charlie.

  3. Le Colline del Tramonto . . . nice name. Nice flowers, too.

    • That’s exactly what they are, Emilio…the sunset hills…and they light-up brilliantly in those last moments of the day, too.

  4. Beautiful! I was wondering when they would start to bloom.

    • I thought so, too, Terry…and by the looks of some of the empty stem-tops, it looks like some of them may have already been in bloom for a couple of weeks already.

  7. Thought I commented but I don’t see it – these are even better on the desktop monitor! I love them in bud, such elegance.

    • Yes, I think a large screen would be very kind to these images….bringing out all the fine details.

  8. Ummm… am I wrong, but don’t they open and close with the sun? Beautiful shots, though!

    • You are quite right, Gunta…if I had stayed around for another hour or so, I could have captured them with their golden cloaks wide open and soaking-up the sunshine.

      And thank you, too. πŸ™‚

  11. How pretty. I like the way they are wrapped up like cones before unfolding.

    February 29, 2016 at 12:58 pm

    • Almost looks like they’re shy…. πŸ™‚

    You’ve drawn us all in with these wonderful yellow flowers. I mean, how can we not feel happy when looking at them?

    • I’m glad they made you feel happy, LB…a little touch of desert Springtime….
