Well, Spring is pretty much over here. Temps in the 100s. This is Summer now. In 6 wks or so the next season, "Hotter than H***" starts. But the Saguaro are blooming.

Spring is just getting going here - taken this morning - but easier for me than for our southern hemisphere friends.

The seasonal wetlands that abuts our back yard. The area belongs to the homeowners association and floods over in late winter/early spring and holds water until mid/late summer. Lots of wildlife action, including fish.

If you're still accepting submissions. Spring crops are in full bloom and more are leaving the greenhouse every day. The crop on the benches is Lantana. "Hot blooded Red" on the right and "Sunrise Rose" on the left.

Lot of phlox in the alpine here. Very different, but, still, this reminds me of happy times in magical happy places.
