We visited the Sonoran dessert last March whilst on holiday in Arizona, it’s a great place and not too hot yet in Spring. In Summer the heat must be unbearable !!! I loved every second of it !
THOSE SAGUARO CACTI WERE REALLY IMPRESSIVE, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU KNOW THEY ONLY GROW A FEW INCHES A YEAR.
THEY LOOKED ABSOLUTELY STUNNING AGAIST THE BLUE SKY.
THE SONORAN DESSERT STILL LOOKS VERY WILD.
LOTS OF WILDFLOWERS
FLOWER BUDS AND FRESH NEW LEAFS FOR THIS OCCOTILLO
A SPIDER HOLE IN THE GROUND, BUT I DIDN’T SEE THE SPIDER.
CACTI PARADISE FOR ME
RIPENING BERRIES ON A SUCCULENT PLANT WHO GREW ON A TREE
LUCKILY FOR MY HUB THERE WERE BIRDS TOO
We loved the peace and quiet, when you go on vacation in Europe there are crowds everywhere so you can’t take a decent picture !
Have a great week all and thanks for visiting, don’t forget to enjoy your garden or balcony !
As promised, more pictures of the Sonoran Dessert Museum.
PRETTY WILD FLOWERS GROWING ALONGSIDE THE CACTI
FRESH NEW SPRING LEAFS
OPUNTIA SANTA RITA
HUMMINGBIRDS ARE LURED WITH SWEET STUFF, THEY WERE KEPT IN AN AVIARY WHERE YOU COULD WALK INSIDE TO SEE THEM UP CLOSE
I LOVED THAT PERFECT BLUE SKY !!!!!
ADENIUM FLOWERS, A SUCCULENT
We loved our visit to the Sonoran Dessert garden, it was hot though even in March !
Thanks for your visit .
We took a small break this week and we went to the east of Belgium, to the province of Limburg. People go there for walking and cycling in the green. We took the dogs with us and we went for a long walk along a canal. Silly me forgot our camera so we took these pictures with a cellphone, the quality is not so good I’m afraid !
THE FIRST SIGNS OF AUTUMN : FUNGI
BERRIES OF THE AMERICAN CHERRY TREE, THE BIRDS LOVE THE BERRIES A LOT
WHITE WATER LILLIES WERE GROWING ALL ALONG THE CANAL
SAMBUCUS NIGRA OR ELDER
A SMALL BROOK IN THE WOODS NEAR THE CANAL
A TREE KNOB
OZZY ENJOYED OUR WALK A LOT
JIP ON THE OTHER HAND PREFERS TO BE CARRIED ARROUND BUT WE WANT HER TO WALK SO SHE WALKED THE WHOLE WAY AND I THINK THAT AFTER ALL SHE ENJOYED IT TOO, WE CERTAINLY DID !
HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY ALL AND HAVE A GREAT WEEK ! THANKS FOR VISITING !!!
