If You've Got It, Flaunt it Arizona!

If Adam and Eve had been kicked out of the Garden of Eden into my Arizona spring, they might not have noticed...until Eve sat on a cactus and Adam tried to pet a rattlesnake.

















 
Soon the Ocotillo spears will burst into red flames at the tips for a few glorious days.  

Inevitably though, the Arizona sun will burn brighter and hotter
and I will move indoors to hibernate during the long hot summer.  
Today I am enjoying my own desert garden of Eden.

Beautiful pictures! I even recognized some of those plants. My area doesn't get as hot as yours, but I can't take the humidity so try to get out and enjoy spring also.

Gorgeous! My mom lives in and loves the desert.

I lived there myself for five years of my childhood. It has a beauty all its own, doesn't it?

These pics make me miss Indiana. No, these look nothing like Arizona. I want Hydrangeas, and tulips, and the ice cream man named Crazy Dave, and the book mobile. Sorry, got carried away.

You've been out hiking. I need to get out there. If A&E had gotten sent in to this area, it wouldn't have been so bad for them. A little adobe - water from a cactus here and there - They'd have made it.

The desert has a beauty all it's own, and some of it's colors are the most brilliant. They're just packaged in prickly ways. I loved to see these pictures! At least you can notice when spring comes. It's the same as any other here.

The colours are beautiful - and perhaps the more so because of the dry and dusty surroundings. Spring is springing up all over the desert - and it looks prickly!

The first thing I thought of when I saw your pictures is "There is beauty all around...", the Lord's earth is beautiful not matter where you look.

Beautiful. We still have some snow on the ground. A few crocuses poking through. Definitely no cacti.

Alas, beauty can be found everywhere, but it is harder to find in some places.
