I invited my brother to fly out from New Jersey last month to visit us. I told him March is the best time to experience Arizona.
I was wrong.
Sorry Bill. Plan your next visit for April. So much more is in bloom, and 80 degrees is a pleasant temperature to stroll around the neighborhood.
Here’s what I saw on today’s jaunt (you can click on the smaller pictures to enlarge them and see the captions):
Palo verde in bloom
Mexican bird of paradise.
Prickly pear with blossoms.
I don’t know what these are called, but they have concentric rings of different colors.
I think these are a variety of daisy.
This oleander was so fragrant I had to inhale. I’ll probably pay for it with allergy symptoms.
Hibiscus. (Not the whirly thing.)
Roses by a community pool.
A few dandelions found a shady spot to bloom under a pine tree, right by a sprinkler.
For more flowers of the day, see Cee’s Photography.
