Post number 405

March in the desert is typically a windy month.  So far, we have not been disappointed in the wind department.  Today's high was 62 degrees, give or take a degree.  The wind made it feel colder than it really was.  Of course I long for hot sun and 100 degrees.  The exciting news is that I have seen my first signs of desert wildflowers!

Green, but soon to be orange... (this one is not a native wildflower, but an aloe in my yard.)

I don't feel much like writing, but hopefully, the photos are enough, today.

The brown stems of the Desert Trumpet.  The leaves are turning green, but no signs of the tiny yellow flowers just yet.

Karine, your photos are like manna for me. We finally have blue sky, but it'll be weeks before we see little blossoms opening up. Thanks for a bit of spring.

Karina, It is so much fun to see your photos and imagine that if I walked directly south, I could see the beauties in person. My succulents are having a field day in our Valley rain, storing it up for those hot summer months.
