It's spring here in the Sonoran Desert!!
Here are some photos (As promised!) of some of the spring flowers in my yard and around my neighborhood.We had great rains this winter-spring and have more wildflowers than usual. I have names for most of them listed under the photo. The flowers are great inspiration for artwork!
