We went away for the weekend to Puerto Penasco and came back home to warm weather and the desert busting out in bloom. What I’ve discovered is the blooms don’t last long. One day a cactus may have a gorgeous flower — the next day it’s gone.
I’m amazed at how many flowers are in blossom in the Sonoran Desert.
I have a little plant guide from the McDowell Sonoran Preserve called “Wildflowers” that categories native blossoms by color. I’m doing my best to use the book to identify the plants.
Here are blooms I saw during my morning walk:
What is blooming in your neighborhood?
We’ve got some tulips popping up – but it’s supposed to snow next week – we’ll see if they survive. Love the desert blooms!
That’s wild to have tulips and then snow!
The Desert Hyacinth is my favorite!
it’s so beautiful. It’s at a neighbor’s house and I wish we had one.
Your images are stunning! Wow! Now that’s worthy of a morning walk. I think succulents are absolutely amazing and always surprising. Thanks for the wonderful photos! xxoo, C
I’m glad you enjoyed them!
Why can’t I see the images?
I don’t know?
It doesn’t say the images are broken or anything. They’re just not there.
