Sunday Music

The Wilde Boys will be performing at the Vail Theatre of the Arts April 24.

We took the Airstream to Picacho Peak to meet some friends and enjoy the wildflowers.  Most people think Arizona is hot, dry and colored only in varying shades of muted greens and browns.  Most people would be wrong.  The yellows, golds, and blues of the spring wildflowers are so vibrant that they sometimes don't seem real.  And they don't last long,  so we have to enjoy them quickly because in the blink of an eye they're gone.  And we are left wondering if in fact they were real. 


  1. Thanks for sharing the desert wildflowers :-)

  2. Great photos of Picacho... a place we have visited several times in spring. It looks particularly lush this year though. thanks for reviving my memories of a desert spring... fleeting, but vivid. If only my winter was so fleeting. More snow today... sigh.

  3. Yes Mark, the flowers are beautiful but I think they were more lush in '98. (now I'm soundin' like an old fogey) However. I've never seen the desert this green this late in the year. Life is full of surprises.
