April is a wonderful time to visit the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix. When the Sonoran Desert has received plenty of moisture in the winter months, wildflowers grow abundantly. The Sonoran Desert covers southern Arizona and northern Mexico (with the westernmost section in eastern California.)
What’s nice about the botanical gardens in Phoenix is that even when the winter is dry and flowers are not at all plentiful in the wild, the well cared for plants in the botanical garden receive the water they need to provide plenty of those beautiful spring blossoms.
In April 2021, we visited the gardens with visiting family to share the beauty of the desert spring. As usual, I took my “real” camera, either my Sony or Nikon, but I also am on the lookout for interesting images for my cell phone.
About the photo: This beautiful collection of pastel yellow flowers was just “begging” to be included in a Cellpic Sunday feature. Those delicate blossoms hide the prickly nature of those pancake-shaped branches. After exposure and downloading to my desktop, I processed the image in Adobe Lightroom and Luminar Neo. Click on the image to pixel peep in 2K HD on my Flickr site and see the image metadata.
I encourage fellow bloggers to create their own Cellpic Sunday posts. I never have a specific topic for this feature, and the only rules are that the photo must be captured with a cell phone, iPad, or another mobile device… If you have an image from a drone or even a dashcam, that’s acceptable as well. The second rule is to link your challenge response to this post or leave a comment here with a link to your post in the comment.
