This picture was taken near Canyon Lake, northeast of Apache Junction, Arizona. We passed quite a number of cars on the road doing the same as we were–driving and stopping every few miles to take pictures. There are likely a few weeks left to see the bloom. Alot of yellow and purple mixed with a few whites are in bloom now. The cactus look healthy and the mountainsides resemble green velvet.
This photo was taken at the west side of Superstition Mountain from Lost Dutchman State Park on March 1, 2008. Many visitors were there anxiously awaiting the wild flower bloom–which is expected to be spectacular this year due to a higher than average spring rainfall.
I took this picture at Boyce-Thompson Arboretum in Arizona. I don’t know the actual name of this unusual plant. It looks like the cactus version of a sunflower.
