Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”  ~Robin Williams

FlowerIt’s that time of year when Mother Nature goes wild…flowers! She begins shedding her winter layers and shows off all her natural goods she’s kept tucked away through the icy winds and rains. And here at Joshua Tree Oasis—one of the most popular desert vacation resorts in all of California—she beckons you to haul out your swim suit and sun tan lotion; say goodbye to heavy cold-weather gear and step into her colorful display of flowery enchantment. Joshua Tree Oasis in the Spring is truly, OMG! breathtaking.

Every winding trail, rock climb, hammock nap, Jacuzzi soak, desert panorama are surrounded by wondrous bursts of color: Fiddleneck and Whispering Bells; Desert Rock Pea; Yucca; Coulter’s Lupine; Popcorn Flowers; California Poppies; Ocotillo; Chuparosa; Beavertail Cactus…and and on and on! Every angle, everywhere you look or stare or kick-back you can’t avoid their beauty bobbing back at you in the sweet, warm desert winds: Electric Purples and startling blues and golden yellows and bunches upon bunches of scrub flowers and brush now bedecked with crowns of color you have to just see to believe. Gorgeous. And far too fleeting.

Before you know it, Spring will have handed off her wild beauty to Summer sans the acres of wildflowers. So grab this moment—these brief months of brilliance—along with your camera, paint brushes, sketch pad and canvases and immerse yourself in the wildest party of all! When Mother Nature wants to put on a Springtime show, she does it BIG at Joshua Tree Oasis. Ready? Set? GOOOOO PARTAYYYYYYYYY!

“April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go.”~Christopher Morley, John Mistletoe
