I find this flower as beautiful in monochrome as I did when seeing it in color. It is softness against the hardness of sharp cactus needles. It is delicateness against the ruggedness of the prickly pear. It is airiness against the harshness of life in the arid desert. In any context of color or grey, it is a beauty that draws ones focus of beauty in the ocean of beauty that is the desert.
