If you’ve been following our postings you know there has been some considerable rain in Arizona and from what the locals have told us it’s been wet all winter (by their standards) and they predicted an excellent desert spring bloom. They were right! The flowers started popping a couple of weeks ago and it’s only getting better as the days get longer and warmer. The effects of water, sunlight, wind and elevation on the earth’s surface is accentuated in the desert and it’s been great fun seeing how these elements affect the growth and blooming of the astonishing array of plant life. Suddenly we’re seeing green creeping up the mountainsides and flowers bursting forth in little nooks and crannies as well as in vast blankets of blooms. Every turn produces another little gem we’ve not seen before. While we know it’s only just begun we want to share with you some of the beauty of the spring time desert. Enjoy!
