Golden spring

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.
