Wildflowers Bloom and Cacti Prepare

Toward the end of the month I make a run to Bouse to pick up a package from the post office. It’s a one way trip of about 25 miles and it’s really a pretty drive. The boys get some dog park time in. I get internet at the library and get a few things accomplished.
On the way back I immortalize the continued greening of the desert and the beautiful displays of wildflowers along the highway, and the cholla cactus about ready to bloom.

Cholla (choya) is about to bloom!

I am determined to stay around long enough to see the cacti bloom. It should be earlier this year with all the water we have gotten. Winter seems to have heaved one last sigh and summer, will probably jump right in, but who knows. We went from freezing our hineys to 80 degrees last Friday, March 1st. Then we went right back to rainy weather and cooler temps. And so it goes. At least the current, cooler conditions will make it easier to stick around waiting for those cacti start putting on a show. Unless of course it warms again.

Thanks for stopping by 2Dogs!  Hugs, Shawna and The Chiweenie Brothers.

CURRENT READ:  Mary, Queen of Scots by John Guy.  An interesting book on Mary Stewart’s reign, but a long read.  Fortunately, 40% of it is footnotes and documentation of the facts.

  1. Beautiful start for spring..My Nectarine is looking like it will bud out soon…Not looking forward to the spring burning of pine needles and packing the weed sprayer around these 2 acres. But I am not looking forward to the summery temperatures..Love the warm spring days and cool nights! Have a great week!
