    Purple flowers field badlands of Utah. This is an incredible capture by photographer Guy Tal of a rare event in the badlands of Utah that occurs every few years when the conditions are just right and the arid lands burst into color with carpets of scorpion weed and bee plant.

    The magic carpet of scorpion weed in Mojave Desert, Utah Every few years for a few short weeks, this remote section of desert is transformed into a magic carpet of purple. But its beauty is best appreciated in a photo- locals talk of the plants giving off a foul smell like human body odour. Worse still, it’s not called Scorpion Weed for nothing - pick this desert blossom up and you’ll get a very nasty rash.

    MOJAVE DESERT | Phacelia or Scorpion’s weed is a small blue or purple flower that makes a big impression every few years in a tough environment. The Mojave or Sonoran deserts are normally bleak, sad places, without color most of the year, but when these little rascals decide to bloom, the valleys are turned into vast color patches that steal your eye to the contrast of blooming life in a place of death.
