desert wildflowers

I've just returned from Death Valley. Everybody in the world was there on the roads, but yesterday I walked 6 miles along a dry wash and saw more than 60 species in flower, and not a single person the whole morning. It was well worth going, and I even found a motel in the grim little town of Beatty, less than an hour from the park. Almost no one was walking more than 50 meters from the roads, and where I was I couldn't even hear any RVs on the roads. 

However, not a single bulb spotted -- thought there would at least be some allium.

Apparently the flowering in Death Valley is making the national news. 
In tomorrow's NBC national evening news (comes on at 6:30 pm here in 
L.A.), they're going to show some scenes of the flowers in Death
