Boston Cactus

The Boston Globe travels to the California desert in Spring, and what do they find? Why, cactus!

Spring is to California’s southeastern deserts – Joshua Tree, Mojave, and Anza-Borrego – what autumn is to New England. From February to June, depending on rainfall and snow melt, the deserts are alive with color as flowers, cacti, shrubs, and trees come into bloom and migratory birds make their way north.

Those crazy Bostonians and their analogizing ways. Now, I’ve always felt that the desert in spring is like the glaciers melting in summer up in Alaska. Or, wait, maybe it’s like the pot-dens of Copenhagen in bud. Well, there you go, another Bostonian and his analogizing ways.
