Blooms Everywhere

Almost everywhere we go, we see flowers in bloom and cactus plants covered in either blooms or buds. The southern Arizona desert is beautiful.  These are three of the ones we saw on Monday this week here in our resort.

This white flower is on the Argentine gigantic cactus.  They are the Easter lilies of the desert.

This prickly pear will be covered with flowers soon.

We saw these flowers a week ago when hiking.

When hiking Thursday, we saw these flowers.  The blooms in this first photo look almost like crocus until you see they are on a cactus plant.

In February and March we had an unusually large amount of rain and now we are seeing the fruits of all this moisture.
