    Wow - quite the blossom fest. That's a lot farther towards the headwaters of the Verde than I have been.

    Really nice Tom - I like the combination of the flowers with the river flowing through the scene and trees in the background.

    Hey Dean....it happens every year but as you said it depends on conditions as we are in the AZ high desert.
    What has a great effect is the amount of water running in the river. A brutal monsoon season or huge rain and snow melt will cause high water flow to rip the flowers from the banks of the river. This HAPPENED in 2017 and there were none. Last year they started to come back. But it just happened again last week so we will see what happens this fall.
