To Rise From the Ashes of the Phoenix

Soon our desert floor will erupt with an array of flowers.  Keep your eyes open around the Tucson area.  Take a road trip down to Kitt's Peak where I think our wildflower season will be a hit.  Today's photos were taken in Tucson at the Tucson Botanical Garden.  The normal desert floor will turn from a brownish green to a burst of intense pinks, yellows, blues, reds, and oranges.  This year promises to be spectacular. And as always, if you can't make a visit to our desert for vacation, I'll be snapping the shots of our "spring" season here.  Stay tuned for more....

  4. Your flower shots are gorgeous. I lived in Tucson when I young and remember the beauty of spring when the deserts came alive with color.

  6. We're hoping to head down that way sometime. I hope the Spring is colorful this year. Not much chance of it up here I don't think. We need rain!

  10. Hi There, Gorgeous flowers... Seems like spring will be popping out all over the country soon. It has been such a mild winter ----so the flowers are 'itching' to bloom early!!!!!ha....

    I remember when we went out west last June on our 3 week trip out there. The wildflowers around were gorgeous --and I was surprised to see so many beautiful colors out there. I'm sure the Tucson area will be gorgeous soon...

    Thanks for sharing your photos.
