Seasons in the Sonoran

Life is change and certainly in the desert that is very true. It seems just a short while ago that the rains were flooding our little town, and before I could say "rainbow" everything was popping out in bloom for spring - and now it's summer already!

Here are a few snaps from the recent weeks:

Ocatillo (or Dr. Seuss plant, if you like!)

Hedgehog cactus - the blooms are huge for their size!

The mighty Saguaro and its delicate white crowns

Everything blooms so quickly and fades so fast - you have to be quick with the camera! (Which I was not).

And now we are into the summer already and those blooms are fast becoming fruits and seeds - the seeds of change, perhaps!
