The Greenest Desert in the World

Tucson is located in the middle of the Sonoran Desert, which is, as stated in the title, is the greenest in the world. As a lifelong easterner, watching the desert turn green and the various plants sprout color for the first time has been an interesting experience. Even with the ongoing drought, flowers are everywhere if you take the time to look. Here is one of the first of a cluster of flowers to open on one of the Saguaro's in my front yard. Look closely and you'll see insects on and all around it.

Wait 'til you see a year with lots of wildflowers! They are usually at their peak in March and April but this year was an absolute bust.... At least the cacti are putting on a show!
