Well, it's getting pretty hot in the Old Pueblo. We haven't "broken the ice" yet - that occurs when the temperature officially breaks 100 degrees Fahrenheit - but we've come pretty close.
The cactus have been blooming and I've managed to take a few photos. I saw this spectacular plant in our neighbourhood when I was out walking early Wednesday morning and took some quick snapshots with my Canon Powershot SD700.I thought I'd go back today to try to take some better photos with the 100 mm. lens, but when I drove by I saw that the flowers were already shrivelled - a two-day wonder.
