Photos: It’s Spring Flower Time!

March 16, 2007

Photographs by Howard Myers

The flowers are starting to bloom in our part of the Sonoran Desert. In this article, we feature photographs taken by north Scottsdale’s Howard Myers in 2008 during a drive to Bartlett Lake. The number and variety of wildflowers that bloom vary from year to year; 2008 was a very good year.

You can also find wildflowers blooming at Pinnacle Peak Park, the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, the Desert Foothills Land Trust preserves, and Maricopa County Regional Park in Cave Creek.
