This weekend, we found ourselves in Mesa, Arizona for a swim meet. While the weather in Colorado has been pretty mild, it’s not warm enough for an outdoor swim meet. We definitely were looking forward to some Arizona sun and warmth. Back in Colorado, we’ve had our share of below freezing temperatures, especially at night. With that in mind, there aren’t much in the way of flowers left, so it was nice to see bright, colorful, flowers again. Also, the Colorado climate does not support palm trees. Just the sight of palm trees makes it feel like a vacation for us. I hope you enjoy these images from Mesa, Arizona.
