El Niño Winter And Arizona Spring — Flowers

I’ll put one photo of a yard at my house, then send you off to my flower and landscape blog (saves this blogs space)  Hope you like flowers.  It is believed that this year El Niño winter brought extra rain to our part of the world.  This helped to bring out the seeds that have gone native here for years now, bringing an unprecidented flower display. Now if La Niña brings more summer rain this monsoon season, another crop of flowers will rain up.

Spring is springing out at my house. The desert’s native white prickly poppy has made a new home in the back yard.
