Arizona Spring: A Wonderful Surprise

Posted on

As summer begins heating up in the Valley of the Sun, we can look back on our Arizona spring with fond memories.  This spring was especially beautiful because of the increased rainfall in the winter.  Our class even used this time to write some poetry commemorating the event.

Spring

Spring is a bright flower blooming
Spring is joyful noise
Spring is a tree sharing its color
Spring is awesome

Spring in Arizona is a wonderful surprise because of the unexpected splashes of color everywhere you look.  Here is a video a group of classmates made to show new life coming to the desert in the spring.

We were lucky to see all of this evidence near our school.  We watched the baby hummingbirds and squirrels grow right before I eyes as we went about our busy school days.  To our class, that was a celebration.  It made us think about the book “I’m in Charge of Celebrations” by Byrd Baylor.  She writes her books in free verse poetry.

Sometimes when people think about cacti, they only think of the painful spines cacti grow…and they are painful!  In the spring, though, they create colorful blooms reminding us of a colorful sunset.
