The yuccas are in bloom in our mountain foothills. I've seen them from about 1,000 feet to 3,000 feet, but not above that. Maybe it is too cold for them above that elevation? They seem to love the rocky foothills. I've had my eye on these three ever since they opened up to bloom, but it was several weekends before I FINALLY stopped to photograph them. And, I used my "new" (reconditioned) Nikon D40x to take this photo! I'm still learning how to use it (hubby gave it to me as a late birthday present/early Mother's Day present). He kept his eye out for a reconditioned one and this one came up and he ordered it that afternoon! He has a D40 and we can exchange the lenses. We'll keep an eye on the yuccas. Some are in full bloom while others are just now starting to open. That's My World for Tuesday, May 5, 2009.
