Palo Verde Blooms


The Palo Verde trees are in full bloom right now and they are showing off their golden color for all to see.  The bees love the blooms so you will find bees humming around the branches.


The trees are creating a bright yellow backdrop for the wildflowers that are also blooming all over the area.


As the days pass, the little yellow blooms fall to the ground and create a carpet of yellow everywhere you look.  It's one of the magical things about springtime in the desert.

Beautiful trees! I don't think I've ever seen one, certainly not in bloom.

These are really a strong yellow, just like the golden trumpet tree I showed today from Florida.
