The Saguaro Bloom photo is lovely. I always want to take a photo but I need a ladder and of course someone to climb it for me.
Isn't it to early for the blooms ?

cheers, parsnip

I love them all, but said "wow" when the milkweed picture loaded. Such a beauty for such a humble plant.

Hello there,

It's going to be hot tomorrow! Which is good for the cacti flowers etc. I have been waiting for the Saguaro to start blooming and it's great to see a shot already of them with flowers. I am shocked at how early everything is popping up around the landscape. I already have little peach buds on the trees! A month early this year! Beautiful shots. Now what to do in 90 degree weather! I don't think hiking sounds particularly appealing to me:) Have a good weekend.

Beautiful wispy clouds and springtime flowers. The milkweed is particularly pretty.

Teresa said...

It's getting closer and closer...that spring fever!
Love all the colors and can't wait to see more.
The ocotillos are almost ready maybe a couple more weeks.

Loree said...

How pretty. The clouds look like they have been painted in the sky.

Barb said...

I'll be visiting AZ soon and your photos make me excited to see the desert. I'm hoping for some blooms while I'm there.
