This is why Jan Brewer will not drive me out of Arizona. These are the scenes that greeted me this week. This is a Mexican Bird Of Paradise. It blooms all summer long.
I was told that this is Forsythia. If you know otherwise, please let me know.
These are blossoms on a Barrel Cactus. See the bee enjoying the nectar?
In a May blog I posted photos of the yellow blooms on a Prickley Pear cactus. This is the fruit that some use for making candy, jam and wine. My late husband made wine once and it was undrinkable.
The color on this tree is not good, but it is covered in pink blossoms. I do not know what it is.
This is a Texas Ranger in my backyard.
A typical sunset.
Another sunset. Not as colorful, but pastel sunsets are nice, too.
A large Barrel Cactus blossom.
Four blossoms have opened. More to come.
