Springtime Downtown


It's still spring in Phoenix and I'm enjoying seeing the palo verde blooms all around town.  There are quite a few palo verde trees lining the streets downtown which makes a good opportunity to take another shot of a high-rise building through the branches of a blooming tree.

I'd like to see the view from one of those top floor balconies!

The last time you showed us the wonderful Palo Verde trees I meant to Google and see if we can grow them here Sharon, will do so right now :) The penthouse up there must have an excellent view!

It looks like maybe the blooms are fading a bit. Are they at the end of their blooming cycle?

Natural creations and human constructions, always a fascinating comparison !

Pretty building! Office or residential? Either/or it would be spectacular to look out from one of the higher floors.

Nice shot. I hear that today will be the first temp of 100 this year for Phoenix. We are going to be in the low 80's.

I like this one against the condos.

Excellent composition, Sharon!

That's quite an apartment building! Downtown, too! Beautifully composed and shot. Did you use a polarizer? That sky is so dark blue. Love it.

Thank you, too, for your very generous comment this morning. You made my day!

Hi! I just found your blog through a comment you left on Good Fences (about Petticoat Junction) and popped in. I just became a Follower. It would be neat if you could add a Follow By E-Mail feature to your blog so people could get updates via e-mail when you post. Have a great day. I enjoyed stopping by your blog.

That's a great shot, Sharon! And what a sky!

That's a super shot of the stark, modern building with the sweet delicacy of the spring colours!

Pretty blooms and I like the modern look of that building.

All our spring flowers are gone. Strange since you are a a good deal farther south and in a much hotter climate.

Nice composition Sharon.
