Wild thing! YES! Arizona “wild” flowers! People who live in Arizona know this IS the time of year to enjoy the many, many wildflowers in bloom! You should know, my favorite places to view the many wildflowers are: 1) Desert Botanical Garden; 2) Boyce Thompson Arboretum.  Following are photos I recently captured during my visit to the Desert Botanical Garden. Enjoy!!
