these beautiful purple flowers were everywhere in the area and some even started to grow up trees. the coloration would range anywhere from a light purple, almost lavender even, to a dark deep purple that in some cases appeared slightly blue
i walked up and unexpectedly noticed it perched on a large rock in the middle of a creekbed. the gray feathers allowed it to blend in almost perfectly but i was able to capture a photo even though it is still hard to see.
these white flowes with yellow center were in full bloom when i took this photo of them. they were in large bushes and were bunched together.
there was a bunch of them blooming in the area up all the way along the creek path.
