The palo verde trees are all blooming right now. This is REALLY early! They normally don't bloom until...MAY! It's been an unusual spring, for sure! Anyway, I went for a walk this morning at the Santa Rosa mountain visitor center VERY early, due to the time change. BOING! My eyes were open the second it got light. So, off I went, camera around neck, and hat ON! I don't think we are going to have a wildflower crop at all this year, but the palo verdes are sure making up for that! Aren't they beautiful?
