Spring in the Desert.....
....is feeling a lot like summer. While it's been unseasonably cold in some parts of the globe this spring, it's been unseasonably warm here in the desert. About 10 degrees warmer than it should be this time of year. So if I want to take a walk at the Desert Botanical Garden, I need to get there early. I'm glad I was there early this last weekend to see the palo verde trees blooming and making a canopy of yellow to walk through.
I also saw the Chinese Wisteria blooming and I snapped a photo because it won't last much longer with the temperatures so high.
And I really liked this bougainvillea bonsai. For a plant whose growth is difficult to control, seeing a bonsai version makes it patio perfect.
