I've never been in the Arizona desert this late in spring before. The bright yellow blooms of the Palo Verde tree are everywhere! No wonder this is Arizona's state tree.
They kind of remind me of the forsythia bushes back east.
The Palo Verde tree is recognizable the rest of the year by its green bark.
I've moved into a park (gasp!) to escape the heat, and there are huge oleander bushes in full bloom behind my rig. They're poisonous, but I'm not planning to eat them...
At the entrance to the park is this hairy cactus filled with lantana blossoms.
Lots of cactus are in bloom too.
This one is also in the park, right near my trailer.
This busy little bee was after the pollen. Better him than me.
