Tucson’s Springs of Gold—- Flowers

Seems the Palo Verde’s will be shinning this spring a little more than usual. There are at east two major kinds, these early ones that produce affluent clouds of yellow or gold, and a bit later I think the Blue Palo Verde’s bloom, still yellow but with somewhat more spaced out and perhaps larger Flowers.

These in the photo’s are just starting to get going March 26 2009—-

CHECK IT!—–Todays views in my yard

Here are some photo’s of things going on in the yard. I planted all these, but many are third generation an spreading on their own.

The privet at the left is blooming brightly, followed by hollyhocks.

and the verbena below is spreading all over several yards

and see what I mean

and gold finches love the seeds of the orange flower below


bye.  That is my hand shadow on the wall near the branch division from trunk of tree shadow.  OK. It’s blurry.  I was waving.
