The weather is cooperating, and the trees and cactus are a floral riot. After 2011’s winter with its severe cold snap in February, it is a joy to see the cactus and trees outdo themselves this spring. It even makes it worthwhile to get out and walk (and sneeze!) through the neighborhood. Enjoy it while you can; soon enough it will be too hot to stop and admire the bloom — what those in the know are calling our best palo verde bloom in a long time!
