What a gorgeous spring in Phoenix!  In the 18 years we've lived n our current home our plants have never had anywhere near as many blooms as they do this year.  They are packed full of flowers!  It is amazing!

 

Phoenix is Blooming with Color!

This plant is actually 3 separate plants but not this year! After coming back from my morning hike I took some time to really notice what was going on in our front yard.  And it is full of awesome and bright colored plants! I love, love love having all the color in our front yard!

 

Phoenix is Blooming with Color!

 

And take a look at this little guy - he has NEVER EVER bloomed before!  I had no idea this cactus flowers' would look so interesting!  Aren't they amazing!  They kind of look like little cactus pineapples!

Anna,

Wow, love the bougainvillea bushes and the intensity of the colors.  Those cactus pears are amazing and just the right "banana" color.  I thought of you in our Noon Yoga Yin class, when were doing the banana stretch pose.

Here is what it looks like.  Yin Yoga is a way to stretch your muscle fascia, and is done supported by bolsters and blocks if needed.  The pose is usually held for 4-5  minutes.  you keep both hips on the ground, then edge your legs to one side and your upper torso to one side.  This stretches the side body.

Those are amazing looking flowers and plants, Anna!  It's still too early for those kinds of views here in Sacramento.  But, we are getting there.

Hi Anna Banana - that first one looks like 3 azaleas that grew together.  Great color.

That fuschia colored shrub is gorgeous.  Much more my taste.  Of course, in Virginia, we aren't likely to ever see a cactus live outside.

Hi Anna - That's good news. Mary & her twin Maggi are heading down there tomorrow to meet their half-sister for the first time, and Mary will appreciate the color, since we don't have much here yet.
