Joshua Trees in Bloom

Yucca_brevifolia_inflorescenceJoshua Trees are in bloom this spring across the Mojave Deserts. They are blooming in southwestern Utah, as well as California, Nevada and Arizona, The Salt Lake City Tribune reports. The article says that the long-lived trees rarely bloom and to have so many bloom over such a wide area is a “once in a lifetime event.” (An event that is likely just about over, the article notes.)

This is some “extra” news, which won’t inform your wildlife management work, but may add some joy to it.
