|First poppy of false spring
If you strolled past my yard yesterday morning, you might have caught me outside in my pink housecoat. On our sporadic cold winter days, I love to hang around the house bundled in my cozy robe. Who would have thought that I would be inspired by the sunny 57 degree weather to snap photos of the wildflowers sprouting in our rainwater harvesting catchment basin! I just had to capture a photo of the first poppy of False Spring.
it snowed twice late last February and early March - when it rarely snows in Tucson. As the snow melted, our yards filled with wildflowers last April. Looks like it's gonna be another spectacular year for wild flowers!
In the meantime I am enjoying seeing our basin green up - a sign of the wildflowers to come. #lovemyrainbasin What else can I do?
It's fun to see the globe mallow springing back with all those leaves!

I planted a couple of agave in the right of way basin (leaving plenty of room for them to grow.) Thanks, neighbor!
