We need rain in the fall to make for a great wildflower season. Last fall we got none and this spring virtually no wildflowers. A real bummer for me because I really enjoy going out and shooting them. The cacti don't depend much on rain so the saguaros are budding nicely. The Argentine Giants, which have the largest cactus flowers did well this year but they are just about done. I'll probably shoot the Saguaro flowers later this spring when they're in full bloom. Barrel Cactus are also starting to bloom now. Their flowers are not as dramatic as the Argentine's or Saguaro's but are a beautiful yellow.

I'll post when I get some. BTW, I have a Saguaro in my backyard that I transplanted from my daughter's home and it's not budding yet. Hope it does.
