Our busiest season is January, February, and March. Essentially guests who live in the northern US, Canada, and Europe. But, the best time to come to Southern Arizona is actually April and May when the desert blooms with such color as to open your hearts with joy.
For the next couple of days I will show you some of that color. All the photos will have been taken on our property in the past week. I will start with Aloes and Agaves, then "bushes", cactus, fruit trees, and other trees.
So, first up the Aloes and Agaves:
|Aloe Cammeroni which are in abundance here at The Azure Gate. They flower like this every year.|
|Century Plant (Agave) that throws up a stalk with flowers and polyps before it dies. We have five or six like this now.|
|Octopus Agave with it's stalk and flowers. We have several hundred of these Agaves, 10 or 12 of which are blooming.|
