Heber Wildflowers

Heber received a great deal of rain this summer which gave the wildflowers a chance to really take off. We were out in the woods doing a little hike and I couldn’t help but take some pictures of many of the flowers we saw.

Cactus is Blooming

I noticed a bunch of red from the deck while having coffee. I don’t know what it is about cactus flowers I love. I typically think cactus is ugly (I’m a native AZ girl, my dad always loved cactus so over the years I’ve had to pluck more cactus spines from my body/clothes/dogs than I can count!). I guess seeing something so pretty coming from something so mean makes me happy. Don’t get me wrong, the second those flowers die I will dig that sucker up.
