says windy tomorrow yet the wind is a blowin' mightily TODAY with no warning from

Tis not a day to have the back windows open. The Palo Verdes have finally decided to bloom all of a sudden. These are slow learners compare to other places I have visited lately. These yellow blooms are not liked by allergy sufferers as they love to coat everything with yellow powder. I'm sure they will get more replete with blooms in the next few days if they don't get blow off by the wind tomorrow which isn't really happening today.

You can see the Ocotillos are well and truly done now, the leaves are gone and the blooms are almost gone, enjoyable for 2 months maximum out of the year. The prickly pear cactus still is abloomin', delightful!
