Photography: White Poppies in Bloom along the roadside between Willcox, Arizona and Chiracahua State Park 7-31-11

PhotobucketWe found allot of poppies and other flowers in bloom along the roadsides.  Southeast Arizona is much greener than the Phoenix area due to more rainfall and higher elevation.

Photography: Arizona Wildflowers – near Canyon Lake March 16, 2008

Sunday, March 16th, 2008

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.

MED Unusual Flower

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.
