It does not look like spring is coming to Midwest any time soon. With temperatures jumping between 30 and 64 every other day, we still do not even see a hint of green grass. Luckily, I got a chance, again, to spend some time in warmer climate last week. Although in Arizona, it did not feel like spring either. With green all around (shouldnt it be a desert?), blooming trees and cacti, and temperatures in 80s, it felt more like summer. No problem, with all the colors and beautiful, sunny weather, there was a lot to see and to photograph. And my favorite turned out to be this close up of Arizona state tree- Palo Verde.
