Blooming Spectacular

We just got back from a trip, in which we were lucky enough to get a peek at what may be a once-in-a-lifetime event. Virtually every Joshua tree in the southwest is in bloom, in what is being called an unprecedented display. I’m afraid I only have this crummy drive-by photo, but it was pretty amazing to see:

And returning from the trip, I had lots more tulips in bloom:

The early iris are starting to bloom too, and even the lilacs. It’s a world of color out there!

    The colors of your tulips are stunning!

  8. I guess if we gotta have a drought, it should be worth something “unprecedented”.

    Your purple and white stripey tulips are amazing. There is nothing like the spring flowers in Utah that have been nurtured by the winter cold and snow. We had a condo there for business up above the zoo for 4 years and the gardens were so lovely this time of year.

    What a welcome home from the desert! But I do love the desert in the spring as well. I’m glad it was a lovely journey!
