A Fairy Duster

Not all desert plants look like cactus and threaten the world with spines and thorns. The fairy duster is a innocuous bush most of the year until it blooms with delicate red to pink exploding flowers. It is a favorite landscape plant and is only seen in wild occasionally. The flowers remind me of Fourth-of-July fireworks. It is amazing how even the most inconspicuous bush in the desert can have such beautiful flowers.
