Basant Bahar- Spring blooms



The desert has come alive with the blooming wildflowers and trees. Some years the blooms are more abundant than others, and I think this year was one such year. The weather has also been beautiful lately, with really nice-long-cool evenings, just the right weather to enjoy outdoors.


In pictures is Palo Verde (pal-oh ver-dee) which is Arizona's official state tree

Please do take more pictures of the blooming wildflowers and trees! I would love to see them. It has been a long winter. Now that it's getting a bit sunnier,I'm sure there are thousands of pictures to take :-)
The sky is the limit.
