Palo Verde Trees in Bloom

Palo Verde

The hillsides and arroyos are filled with the brilliant yellow blossoms of the delicate Palo verde trees.  The flowers punctuate the browning landscape as the winter rain effects dissipate and the dry season hardens up the earth before the coming monsoons of late summer.

Close up, the flowers surprise with accents of red and orange.
