It is definitely spring in the desert. It is supposed to be in the mid to low 80's the rest of the week, and the flower garden is filling in nicely. The petunias and pansies are mounding nicely.
The gazanias are bursting into bloom.
The roses have many buds and a few open blossoms.
|bush morning glory|
The bush morning glories have just begun to blossom. Most just have a few flowers, but this one is fairly full.
|bougainvillea two weeks ago|
As I walked around the yard, I noticed how full the bougainvillea has become since two weeks ago.
|hopseed bush flowers|
|jojoba bush blossoms|
Two weeks ago the hopseed bushes flowered as well as the jojoba bushes.
Soon the lantana, yellow bells, red yucca, and the palo verde tree will blossom. I wonder how fast the summer heat will arrive. Last year we had our first 100 F day April 1.
