Desert Willow~Macro Monday~May 9, 2011

The desert willows are blooming right now. Their bright pink blossoms dot our freeways and deserts. I have two in my yard and one is full of blossoms. The other one I just bought last fall at the Living Desert Reserve and it hasn't got any blossoms yet, but it will next year for sure! I found this one up at the Santa Rosa Mountains visitor center this weekend. I saw several ladybugs on the tree and this one has another kind of bug on it! The bees were busy, too, so I snapped and ran! Macro Monday for May 9, 2011. To view other participants, please go to: http://lisaschaos.com/

Thanks for this pic of the Desert Willow. We were out at our property last weekend in 29 Palms, and 1 of our 3 trees was in full bloom. The hummingbird activity was amazing! By this weekend or next, I imagine all three will be in bloom.
