A few May flowers

At first glance - you see cherry blossoms - then you notice the nice long thorns among the beautiful flowers. So you know better than to put your nose too close for a sniff.

Just an ironwood blooming - telling abe that it is time to go fish the big cats in the salt river - or so the legend goes.

We have had too many dry years here and so with a wet Spring the saguaros are trying to make up for time lost by putting on flowers everywhere. They are very interesting indeed this year.

The desert is truly putting on its finest and we have been able to go out to enjoy it all.

very cool pictures - the desert is beautiful when it is blooming. by the way, you need to update your profile cause I think I count more than 7 grandchildren.
