Spring in Arizona

I think that today is the first day of spring, but it's already early summer in the Valley of the Sun. It is hot, hot, hot! And the natives all tell me that it is going to get much hotter - and they always tag statements like that with "but it's a dry heat!" So is an oven!

Send ice cream!

The good news is that things are starting to bloom. I noticed several blocks on the way home this evening that smelled very perfumy. I would have guessed that it was some desert form of honeysuckle, but I couldn't see the origins of the wonderful scents. The cacti are also blooming - very pretty - but no flowery smells.
