Everything yellow is blooming today, Tuesday, April 14, 2015. The Palo Verde, the beavertail cactus and the brittlebush all have brilliant yellow blossoms with a carpet of yellow on the ground underneath due to the wind. The mesquite tree also has yellow fuzzy seed blossoms and the tree seems alive with buzzing bees, but not a swarm or hive. It will be about 92° today in Apache Junction, Arizona near the Superstition Mountains at a low elevation. We saw a 2 foot long black snake at about 5:30 PM yesterday in our torch garden near our back porch. It seems to have scared away the round tailed ground squirrels. We have many cactus wrens, house finches, sparrows, woodpeckers, and cardinals. Mother Earth is celebrating Easter.
