A Spring Walk In the Desert – CAUTION! Eye Candy Ahead!!

No- this is not a painting. This was my view of the Catalina Mountains on my walk today. Wow! Wow! Wow! It took my breath away.

My husband and I were in a suburb of Tucson, AZ called Oro Valley today. The spring colors were everywhere, and calling for me to get out and enjoy the desert blooms.

Everywhere I looked I was surrounded with brilliant yellow flowers on the cactus and on the Palo Verde trees.

I was also uplifted by the beautiful reds and oranges. They complimented the yellows so nicely.

Whoever said the desert is a barren wasteland, has never been to Northern Tucson. It is lush and green with lots of trees, cacti, and sunshine.

Even the skinny cholla cacti were donning their red blooms today:)

I really am amazed by the beauty of the world we live in. I see the hand of the Master Himself all around me. I feel so blessed! He must really love us to give us such a beautiful world to live in:)

The “crowning” glory of the desert is when the Saguaros bloom and add a crown of flowers to their head and arms.

They are the king of the cacti. It is against the law to destroy one. If you are building and a saguaro is on the building site, you have to hire a professional to come and move it to a new location.

What a wonderful day! It was a T-Sweets Day for sure!!

Thank you so much for dropping by and joining me on my walk today. Please feel free to leave me a comment and tell me about what you see on your springtime walks!

Until next time:)
