Here in Palm Springs the flowers are everywhere. And everything is so manicured. But it is hot! Hot! Hot! They are telling us it is really unusually hot for this time of year. I tell you – I would rather be in the mountains or even home. The cool weather is my friend.
I am, however, loving all the vegetation. We were told they are really at the end of their blooms but at home we are just starting to bloom.
And fruit – lemons and kumquats and grapefruit!This is called a bottle brush.Bougainvillea is every color.The views from the condo are spectacular. And lots of palm trees.This is a little bird of paradise. I love the colors of it.This is one of the big white ones that grows at the top of the tree.I have never seen a cactus like this one.Sitting by the pool, enjoying.And relaxing.More later from our tram ride and hike at San Jacinto mountain.
