Last week we took a wildflower field trip to see not just the superbloom in California, but the desert landscapes of Joshua Tree, Sedona, and the Grand Canyon in Arizona. It was mind-blowing and more beautiful than I could have imagined.
You’d think, as someone who grew up in Southern California, that I had journeyed to these evocative locations before. But this was my first time. So come with me on a tour with a beginner’s mind.
And of course, Joshua Tree would be named as such without this…
Our journey took us to Sedona next, from boulders to red rock mesas. It was surprising to see familiar plants in Sedona.
Then on to the Grand Canyon!
Given all the rain the Southwest got this year, everything was as green as could be. Pine, fir, and juniper trees jutted out from the rocks.

And of course, the reason why we head to a superbloom in the first place:

We returned home to our very own superbloom at Gardenerd HQ. It’s a wild mess out there, but it’s beautiful.
