Last week's visit to Arizon was Magic. For the names alone...
The desert was in full bloom the week I visited. Mexican Poppies, Lupine, Mariposa Lilies....flowers I'd never seen before. All the cacti were flowering or beginning to flower. According to the residents of Tucson this has been a banner year for the wildflowers, due to the large amounts of rain they've experienced this spring.
Speaking of things I'd never seen before, how about 25 life birds!! Vermilion Flycatcher, White Throated Swift, Mexican Jay, Canyon Towhee, Flame Colored Tanageer (a rare bird from Mexico), Pyrrhuloxia, Yellow Eyed Junco...to name a few. And of course RAVENS galore! Love 'em!
My apologies for my blogger Faux Paux! A big oops :)
I started posting a few days ago, got sidetracked, posted briefly, then decided to redo the post...it got late, I got tired, and no post. It's not you, it's me!
