"Yucca Springtime" 6" X 8" Pastel

Here, in southern Arizona the yuccas have blossomed in abundance this Spring. There are so many huge blossoms on each stalk that often the weight will cause them to droop. All this without much rain this winter. Shows me once again how tough and hardy these desert plants are.

  1. These flowers are really beautiful, Carol. I love the way the light is hitting them...Lovely!!

    1. Thank you, Hilda. I hoped to catch some of the beauty in this year's blossoms. They're so large and such a wonderful color mixture of cream and soft yellow. I wish they lasted longer!
