Yuccas Galore

For as long as I've lived in the Chihuahuan Desert, I have never seen so many yuccas blooming at the same time.

It's because of all the rain and snow we got this past winter.

The flowers are really showy.

These stood at attention like a line of soldiers.

They really do gussy up the scenery.

RA Becca must be on strike. I can't really blame her for refusing to pose for photos. Her stress levels are probably through the roof.

I'm not sure I've ever noticed a Yucca blooming. Do they grow in the Tucson area? Very pretty.

They grow in the Sonoran desert, but not nearly as much as they do here.

Becca is outside with a picket sign.
