Photo: Palo Verde Blossoms Covering Barrel Cactus

Yesterday I showed the carpet of palo verde blossoms along one of the streets in downtown Scottsdale.  I mentioned that were a few lumps aong the ground.

Those lumps were barrel cactus covered with palo verde blossoms.  The blossoms look like little pieces of buttered popcorn.

People who think of the Arizona desert as desolate have never been here.  Our desert explodes with color at different times of the year, as illustrated by the blossoms of the palo verde trees and saguaro cacti flowers that I have shown recently.

This week we have photos of dazzling Bangkok, Thailand  posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

You would have to e careful if wearing sandals not to stub your toe on the cactus that is hiding underneath this blanket of blossoms.
