The desert is blooming~Today's Flowers~041413

There are a lot of desert trees and shrubs blooming right now, in addition to the non-native plants.  I especially enjoy the yucca varities, which I'm not posting here now.  All of these other photos were taken at the Living Desert Reserve here in Palm Desert.  Hubby and I renewed our membership just a couple of weeks ago and we went there with our daughter and son-in-law before their baby, Ellie, was born.  I didn't even venture out last weekend (too tired) and this weekend doesn't look much better.  I'm exhausted from parent conferences, a new granddaughter, and life in general!  My energy level is WAY down and I'm fighting a sore throat, so I may not get out at all this weekend...sigh...I hate to lose my weekends, but sometimes it just is that way...Please enjoy these photos of some of our blossoms here in the desert and STAY WELL!  That's hard to do as a public school teacher!   :-(

The top photo is the Baja Fairy duster.  It's an interesting shrub and I have very few photos of it for some reason.  They usually come out too dark!  To visit Today's Flowers, please go to:   http://flowersfromtoday.blogspot.com/

I enjoyed all your photos of the desert flowers. I sure do miss seeing them. We haven't had any flowers blooming here yet in the Midwest. It has been too cold although today it has gotten almost to 60°. We need some warmer weather. I cannot wait.

I hope you feel better soon. It sounds like you have a lot on your plate and I thank you for finding the time to share these beauties with us at Today's Flowers. If I lived near such a place I would be there all the time :)
