I wish I had better news but the rains came a little to late this year still some roadside brittle bush between Yuma and Tucson with some small displays in Organ Pipe Cactus National Park and Tucson’s Pima Canyon. Also poppies at 10% and probably at peak bloom for Catalina State Park. Creosote and other bushes are showing but small. The ocotillo is budding and should show in a few weeks. I did find one pincushion bloom in the Sonoran Desert National Monument. Beavertail cactus are starting to show near the Colorado River. Desert Botanical Gardens and Boyce Thompson Arboretum are both showing some color. We should have an OK cactus and tree bloom in the deserts in a month.

We still have a few spaces left in our “Wild About Wildflowers” photography workshop on March 24-25 at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum. Come polish your skills and learn some new tips and tricks for flower and macro photography! Learn more and register at http://cms-photo.com/Workshops/2018Wildflowers.
