Smoke tree blossoms~Today's Flowers 062710











The smoke trees here in our valley are blooming right now and I stopped one afternoon last week to take some photos of them. The usually-gray trees and now covered with dark blue flowers. And, these flowers attract hundreds of bees! I could hardly get close enough to take the close-up photos! ACK! As I recall, they do not bloom for very long, so I'm glad I stopped to take these pics. Today's Flowers for June 27, 2010.

These trees against the desert landscape and ultra-blue sky are fabulous! We live near Palm Desert and enjoy seeing these in bloom when we are at the desert.
