Spring has Sprung!

Here in Southern Arizona... Spring has Sprung!

Do you remember my post about my planting the Poinsettias outside?  I was walking around outside on Thursday and look what I found?

Those Poinsettias are growing new leaves!  We've had a couple of hard freezes here since I planted them.  I purposely did not cover them.  I wanted to know if they would survive.

And aren't these pretty?

I noticed there are several cactus just about ready to bloom.  We have them in red, orange, peach, yellow... ... it's always fun seeing what color they'll be and they are so PRETTY!

Aren't these wild Bluebells beautiful?

Where do you think this guy is going?
Since this is one of those that produce the pretty flowers, like the yellow ones above, I think I should help him out and move him out from under that tree.  What do you think?

The desert truly does have its own beauty. Sometimes you just have to look under trees for it.
