It was a short walk this morning, due to it being so windy, but I found several things to take pictures of!
Our mimosa tree in the front yard is beginning to show signs of growth, even after the radical trim job it received in March.
A cactus whose blossoms look just like rose buds!
See how the flag stands straight out? Did I mention it was windy?
Blossoms that look like snapdragons but are on a tree!
The tree with snapdragon-like blossoms.
An Ocotillo Cactus in bloom.
Orange-colored flame-like flowers on the tips of the ocotillo cactus limbs. Notice the blimp in the background.
The Huachuca Mountains. Notice the lighter green showing towards the top? That appeared a couple of weeks ago, a very bright green. I suspect that is new leaf growth on trees, contrasting with the darker green/brown of the cedars that grow on the mountain.
A pretty blossoming bush that is very common here, but I don’t have a clue what it is called.
A lovely display of flowers in a front yard, highlighted by an iris in the background. There are not many irises growing around here, but every now and then you see a few.
And one last flowering something … these grow all over the place and I’ve seen them in Florida also. They must like sandy soil and not care whether it is wet or dry.
