Arizona Sunset

We have now moved a bit east into Arizona.  As you can see, there aren’t any wildflowers.  We are here a tad bit earlier then normal, but the lack of wildflowers has much more to do with a dry and unseasonably cold winter that included some freezes.   In some parts of McDowell, many plants appeared dead, hopefully they are just damaged by the freeze.

It is possible that late rains, and now unseasonably warm weather might give us a few flowers – but we definitely won’t be seeing the hills of solid color like we did in 2008.

    Hey Ron

    Nice to see someone still using ND grads. Good luck with the flowers.

    Sunset in Anchorage last night was amazing.

    Cheers

    Well done…looking forward to the flowers as well here in Texas…but the dry fall & a brutal ( for here) winter have our hopes a bit muted this year!

    I’m thinking the same here. It’s well into typical spring time here yet we are still getting cold weather and not much sun. Supposed to be in the 50’s and maybe rain this weekend again.

    My wife and I winter in Mesa AZ. I just finished reading J.A. Jance’s book Queen of night. About a Cactus that blooms one night of the year. Naturally I googled it and wow I found you. You do great work
    Thank you for sharing
