The Desert In Spring

Outside of Vegas, Reno and Lake Tahoe, this is Nevada - one giant desert.


  1. It must be so strange living in a climate like that - unless you get out (and look at the dust) you'd barely know the seasons were passing - is it mostly artificial (out of season or International) planting in Vegas or do you have local seasonal flowers growing in town too?

    Do you feel the seasons much and can you tell what season it is by the flowers being grown around you?

  2. Vegas has 3 seasons - summer (long), fall and spring (5 minutes). I know precious little about plants, but trees bud and some colorful plants bloom - apparently the desert blooms as well.

    A lot of plants, especially palm trees and grass are imported, but I like the indigenous cactuses and the like.
