Artist's Description

In the summertime, the agaves explode; when the plant reaches maturity, it sends up a shoot, resembling a giant asparagus stalk, which then blossoms in a riot of color, after which the plant dies. I caught this one in the brief moment the buds have just begun to open. The red bits are the closed flowers, and the yellow bits have opened.

Some people feel that the desert is a barren, unchanging place, but in reality, it is alive and beautiful and in constant flux. Our seasons may be subtle, but they are marked by such intense details.
