It takes just a little bit of rain to green things up in this desert. We have recently only had traces of rain, no good monsoon gushers as it is toward the end of the season. In all the green a variety of weeds are in full bloom, most of them in shades of yellow, and the desert is fragrant early in the morning.
But I was surprised to see this cactus blooming in the yard. Does it think it is Spring or is it a celebration of Fall? A last hurrah for this year?
