Spring Gardening time...

Love to have hubby's help with pruning bushes
After all the dead growth is trimmed off, it looks better 
Promises of many strawberries coming soon from all those blooms.
This is our little peach tree, small fruit, but aphids also 
Our roses are taking off with the warm temps.
On our roadway, a neighbor's prickly pear cactus is all a bloom.
Closeup of vibrant blooms with more coming.

Ocatilla  shoots will be growing leaves soon..
Spring in the desert brings beauty for a short time then it's HOT!!
