Spring in AZ

During this time of year there are a lot of trees in bloom. I love it when the trees are blooming. I always want to take pictures and never have my camera with me. The other day I took my blackberry out and took a couple of pictures when I left work. The yellow flowered trees are Palo Verde Trees.
They are lovely when in bloom. This trees are in front of the hospital where I work.

This is an ocotillo bush, this branches were used as fences by the early AZ Pioneers.

A close up of the blooms. Yes I was in my car, waiting for the light to change.
There is one more tree I want to get a picture of that has purple flowers, but I haven't been close enough to take a picture. Maybe tomorrow.
Vacation officially starts at 2:30 PM tomorrow May 1st!! I'm so ready!!

Loved the "blooming" pictures! I was just at the Tulip Festival in Utah - amazing blooms. I took dozens of picture! Temple Square was gorgeous too. Hope you see some pretty stuff in Florida; have fun!
