Bahdir,

These were taken at a nature park just down the street from the house. Going to wait about a month and go way out in the desert and get some more pictures with them in bloom. How did you know the Antelope Valley was in the Mojave desert?:?

Hercules,

We would love to get some more rain, we have worn out of shoes doing rain dances but so far no luck.:-)

Well Ionly knew the Mojave desert occupied some portion of CA, and simply asked Professor Google if it was related with the Antelope Valley :-)Looking forward to seeing them in bloom also!

believe those are Joshua trees... they're members of the yucca family that thrive in certain parts of the southwest. i've never actually seen one, but they seem like interesting subjects...

You are correct as they are Joshua trees. If left alone they will grow into some very weird shapes.
