The weather has been very unusual for Vegas this Spring. It’s been cold (which is different) and windy (which is normal) and we’ve had some cloudy days. By cloudy I mean that you can see white patches up in the sky instead of plain dull blue, not that the sun is hidden. Tomorrow it’s only supposed to get up to 77f when our ‘normal’ expected high should be around 94f (33c). Doesn’t look like it will warm up until next week, and some people say they like this transition season – not me, I’m ready for it to get nice and hot.
Around the valley our Palo Verde trees are filled with yellow blossoms, and the red yuccas have flower shoots arching up. In the corner of our front yard we have both. The yuccas are the lower plants in the foreground, ours are only a few years old and so have just a few flower spikes each, as they get older and larger they will put out more spikes. The low wall protects the base from the wind, and it looks like yellow snow under the tree as blossoms fall.
Up close the flowers of each are rather pleasant.
