For many people around the United States, the thought of Spring is nothing more than a dream as winter still has a firm grip on the weather. However, here in the southwest, Spring has already began to show it’s glory with wildflowers starting to bloom in the lower elevations. I spent the day with my family at a Bluegrass Festival in Bullhead City yesterday, and noticed a lot of species of wildflowers were starting to bloom along the highway just outside town. It’s been pretty dry here in Arizona this winter, so I don’t know how extensive the bloom will be. Looking at the wildflower reports, southern Arizona appears to already have some impressive displays popping up.
On any note, it’s time to get that macro lens dusted off, and gear up for photographing the upcoming wildflower extravaganza the southwest is so notorious for. For more information, and to see where the bloom is in full swing, check out the website link below.
