Springtime in Arizona!

Last weekend, I showed pictures from my daughter’s yard in Boise. Springtime in Boise is a bit different from Springtime in Tucson, but hollyhocks, wild flowers and cacti in bloom are as spectacular and as welcome as tulips in the spring.

I lived in Tucson for almost a decade and remember how the tiniest bloom on a cactus could take my breath away.

The hollyhocks that are starting to bloom belong to Sam and Phyllis Turner, friends in Tucson. A few of their geraniums and pansies got in there, too.

Pima Canyon is a 2-hour hike round trip. The pictures of Pima Canyon were taken by Virginia Mann, another Tucson friend. A hike through the canyon takes about two hours round trip. Enjoy the slideshow of Southern Arizona!

  1. If you would like me to post them on my blog, please send. I know that people enjoy seeing spring flowers. The ones I’ve done so far are places I’ve lived, which is why they are special to me. Also, there is such a contrast between Arizona and Idaho spring blossoming, isn’t there?

  2. Yes, quite a bit of difference. I lived in NC for several years and that was where my parents lived and I still have my two brothers, three nieces and a bunch of cousins in the area…. It is gorgeous in the spring!

    I will send you some pics….you can share them if you wish!
