And Spring Says Goodbye

The desert completes her show as our short spring gives way to our first summer. First summer . . . We have five seasons here. The usual spring, fall, and winter seasons and the fore summer, our driest months of May and June and Monsoon Summer when the prevailing winds change direction and storms boil up from the gulf of Mexico and give us much needed moisture. We are all keeping our fingers crossed that we get these much needed storms to give us a break from the severe drought most of the west is experiencing.

The Yellow Bell in my yard. Beautiful plant and will actually bloom most of the summer.

Our beautiful and protected ironwood trees are the next to show off. Full bloom and closeups

Saguaro Blooms. In response to the extended drought they are blooming extra heavy this year.

Thanks for stopping by 2DogsTravel. Hugs, Shawna and those two crazy Chiweenie Brothers

  1. Very beautiful. I thought it would be flatter. I didn’t expect the sharp mountains. Flowers are beautiful. Don’t cook with oliander. Even smoke is poisonous .

  2. You have a set of beautiful pictures. The two arches do look like menacing eyes. Which reminds me of the front of my 4Runner. I always back it into a parking space. Soon after I acquired the 4Runner I came out a grocery store and walked towards the SUV. The front end looked so scary I almost did not want to approach my vehicle. Thank goodness, I have gotten used to it and I don’t notice the aggressive, threatening appearance any more. Sylvia

  3. God is so good to give us those special places and gifts, I doubt I could stand the heat and humidity combined…But I love your pictures! Have a wonderful weekend and hug the boys for me. I so miss Ginger but she is not suffering.
