Spring Flowers at Boyce Thompson Arboretum, AZ

This "winter's" (does Phoenix have a winter?) heavier than normal rainfall has made for an exceptional wildflower season this spring. We drove out to Boyce Thompson Arboretum to see what was in bloom, and found globemallow, lupine, poppies, and penstemon along the way (not to mention some perturbed cows that got caught in the cholla), as well as climbing roses and yucca at the arboretum itself.

These are beautiful!
Love the Globe Mallow especially. I have pic of those cows too right near Peralta Trail road? Some Longhorns too.

Thanks! These cows were on a small gated road on the south side of US60, just before it rises up into Gonzales Pass. If you look close enough, you can see that one poor cow has a piece of cholla stuck on his nose!
