I love flowers! And I’ve been enjoying all the Spring garden posts – mainly from areas of the country that get rain. We get 4.5 inches per year here. Nonetheless Spring has come to Southern Nevada as well. While the native plants do bloom – I saw a blooming prickly pear as we sped by on the motorcycle the other day – but most Spring bloomers here are watered by residents. It is the ability of the plant to withstand our blazing sun and 115F degree summers that determine which plants survive and thrive here.
Except for the Palo Verde tree, all of the pictures were taken in my mom’s garden.

Desert Willow is so pretty, I had to take its photo twice!

Thank you for joining me on this tour through our Spring garden in the desert. I’ll be partying at these linkups all week.
