Last month I showed you lots of red! You can see that here.
So I figured I should show you some GREEN in this post.
The Sonoran Desert has had quite a bit of rain.
As a result we have a very green desert!
Oh, and the wildflowers are in full force! I did mention I was going to show you the gold as well.
It’s Spring in the Desert!

Great photos. I especially like the arch with the cactus. Lots of pretty wildflowers. We are starting to get some crocus and blooms on a pear tree. Other that the black bamboo, which stays green all year even through hard frost, everything is still dry, brown and gray around here.
I have been thinking of you Tim and hope you are feeling well. I thank you for your kind words. And that Arch was a beauty! Quite unexpected when we were out driving the back roads of Arizona. Hope Spring comes soon for you!
Spring is thinking about springing. We had nice warm weather this weekend.
Lovely photos as usual Nancy. Great to hear from you and it must be lovely to see the desert green. We are about to cool down (down) here and not before time either. Summer has been rather hot this year. I’m looking forward to cooler nights and brisk mornings.
Hello Claire! It is sooooooo good to hear from you. I am popping over to see what you have been up too.

I was hoping you moved into your new home! And you did! Congratulations!
Thank you, it took a long time, but so worth the wait.

Hello to You! I hope you are doing well. Thank you so much for popping over here. It means so much!
The wildflowers are blooming in an extraordinary way here in the southwest!
Loved this post! Loved the green and gold in the desert! The lupines reminded me of the Texas bluebonnets. Glad to see you are having fun!
Having a blast! Life is soooooooo good! I am hoping to share more here. Have a fabulous day. Hugs!
I am loving the flowers this year. I’m actually going to walk to the sand dunes this morning, one of my favorite spots.
Those dunes were the first time we saw them. We also were thrilled to see so many …very green Ocotillos.
Enjoy your walk and I hope to come see your beautiful photos more often. You have not lost your eye for finding beauty! Have a wonderful day. Hugs!
This greening of the desert is glorious- you must be relieved about the rain at last! Those are very healthy looking donkeys😊
We thought the same about the donkeys! We are enjoying the desert very much in all it’s lushness! So good to hear from you! I need to stop by and see if you have posted. Hope all is well. Hugs!
Oh my gosh! I cannot believe the beauty of the lush desert. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen her this green. Spectacular!
I think welcome back is in order to you! I bet you are enjoying it as well!
Spring days are full of colors! Have a wonderful March, Nancy!
Thank you Indah! You as well!
Wow! Who knew such beauty is hidden in the desert…you captured it perfectly…and those donkeys..I had to chuckle at them.. great shot
Those donkeys gave me a chuckle as well! Glad you liked “WISH!”
Spring in desert already! Love these beautiful wildflowers. You got cool shots, Nancy. 🙂
Thank you sugar pie! It’s been fun watching this desert just get greener and greener!
Looking forward to more photos! 😍💖
Thank You! Hope all is well with you both and your parents! Keep on Rockin’ the fabulous science posts! I enjoy them.
Thank you so very much for all your support!
The desert is much greener up your way. We watched all the rain stay to the west of Tucson and just pound on the Phoenix area. We are green but nothing like your area. The rain certainly made the desert beautiful for spring:)
It’s truly AMAZING! we have never seen it this way. Love it!
Glad to see you are doing well. And I still love seeing “Lunch With a View!”
All gorgeous shots, but I really love the natural arch and the donkeys. 🙂
Me tooooooo! That natural arch was a find!
Thank You for coming over. So glad to hear from you. Looks like you are doing well and settling in back home.
Your quilt came out beautiful. Hugs To You!
I wonder if we can make it out there before the blooms fade 🙂
Please try before I leave for Pennsylvania…. Oh please try!
When is that?
End of May.
I’m missing a superbloom this year!
I am so sorry to hear that! I will make sure to post more photos for you!! Hugs to you!
