Pieces of April

April is just magic in Tucson....I know the heat is coming but right now it feels like paradise.  Here is a sampling from recent days spent in the sun and dirt.

Gorgeous photos! I am always so amazed how beautiful the roses grow here.

Thanks Teri- mine seem even more vigorous this year. It almost seems like the extra cold winter was good for some of the plants.

I love seeing all your plants and the birds! It's a great time here in Phoenix too but a little hotter than Tucson. The cactus flowers are spectacular this year too. It seems like there are more buds on each plant.

Your roses are gorgeous. I've just planted a few roses for the first time since moving to the desert. Hope mine do as well as yours.
