The challenges and joys of an Arizona low desert gardener
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
I flew to Denver to escape the heat, and for three of the four days I was there, it was hotter in Denver than in Phoenix--by five degrees. I just can't win! The photo was taken coming home today, about 60 miles east of Phoenix.
At least I came home to a nice Echinopsis hybrid flower, red enough to knock your socks off! The week ahead will bring more temperatures in the 105 degree range. I will soon be going to the Eugene, Oregon area for a few days, and I'm going to freak out if we have a cool streak here in Phoenix and Oregon gets record highs!
