This fall the weather in Phoenix has been wonderful, nights are cool but not cold with warm, sunny days and even had a rain shower!
Beside the flush of oxalis flowers, I observed a Polyxena ensifolia blooming.  The flowers are said to be white but mine are a light pinkish lilac color.
The smell is reminiscent of hyacinth.  Lovely little plant!
