This is the time of year that Tucson's cactus bloom in full glory. This lavender beauty is showing off in my neighbor's front yard and the blooms will fade after just a couple of days. Enjoy it while you can!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
