The mystery plant in the photograph below has been identified! A leggy ocotillo is pictured above as well.
Off the beaten path of Southern California's renown network of asphalt highways lay countless photographic opportunities. The tall lonesome ocotillo in the center of this frame was found north of Palm Springs. At 95 degrees, full sun, and no water in sight, the ocotillo faired well. The plant even blossomed with vibrant orange flowers.

Strange species reside in the desert. The pictured plant with green leaves tipped by orange blossoms is one such species. The leggy stalks stood out in the Southern California desert.
I have yet to identify this plant. If you happen to know any information on this type of plant, please contact me.

Canon S90 @ Hole Concert
Courtney Love put on a great performance at The Music Box at The Fonda in Hollywood yesterday, April 22, 2010. My wife likes Hole's music, but only a few songs really hit the right notes for me. I expected to put up with Hole's music, but last night's performance was eye opening.
After a long hiatus from touring, Courtney Love proved that she could still bring the house down. Looking around the smoke-filled room during the concert I saw young fans, twenty-somethings like myself, and the older generation glowing with excitement. I am shocked to say this, but attending the concert was exciting. Courtney Love's music sounded excellent live and The Music Box at The Fonda was a perfect venue. The smallish size of The Music box, eclectic decor, and plush sueded seats made for a great atmosphere.
The surprisingly short set, less than one hour, shocked many people sitting near me. However, the quality of Hole's music made up for the length of the set. For more in depth coverage, please visit the Orange County Register article, Courtney Love roars back to life with brief by powerful Hole set in Hollywood.
If Nobody's Daughter, Courtney's new CD, is anything like this concert, it will be rewarding.
