Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"
Lois Anne was first pregnant when we lived in Scottsdale. The scent of orange blossoms made her nauseous. It was not a happy time for we were inundated with the scent of orange blossoms. I don't think acacia blossoms bothered her at all.
Wow, Sharon these are gorgeous! more sunshine shots to cheer up my rainy day!
Really vibrant color! I have never been around an acadia tree.
I'm with you Sharon, I love that sweet smell of spring, I used to have an acacia tree in my garden and it was a delight to walk out in the morning. I think it must have got too big! I'm really enjoying your floral images!
Aha! So that IS similar to the yellow trees I've seen here. I see what you mean! I think ours are a bit different, though -- maybe a slightly different species.
The trees are all dressed up for spring!
They're very pretty!
That is gorgeous, Sharon! I don't think we have them here but definitely not today because it is really cold again!
They are beautiful.
What was all that talk years ago about smell-o-vision? Now's the time.
It is a lovely tree. I have just had a look back over your recent postings. Every day has offered a wonderful collection of floral color.
Stopped by the Desert Botanical Garden on your recommendation and enjoyed the color upclose and personal
That yellow shade just pops out!
Acacia were very common in southern Africa, and I visited at many different times of the year, but I never saw an acacia in bloom. Fascinating!
