Granted, the desert is mostly tan with green accents in the cactus plants. But not at this time of year. Cactus and other plants, and also trees, are blooming all around us. Yellow is the predominant color, especially while the palo verde trees are in bloom. Many people don't like them--either because of their allergies or because the flowers quickly fall off and we track them inside. But John and I think they are beautiful.
Some of the lantana bushes have a mixture of yellow and orange to red.
And there are a lot more colors.
And here are some more.
It's getting pretty warm around here, but we will enjoy the beautiful flowers for another week or so.
