HOW cold is it?!?

25 degrees.  Yes, that's Phoenix!  With temps dropping below freezing this year, we've had to cover all our cacti at night for the last week or so.  It looks pretty ridiculous to have a yard covered in blankets and towels, but hopefully it will pay off when they all survive to spring!  (pictures of that to follow soon!)

Despite the death threat that faces most of our desert native plants, we had a little surprise in our backyard a few nights back.  A mystery plant that, until now, was just a group of little green nubs surprised us by throwing out a beautiful little flower!

What a nice little winter surpise :)

  1. Hello,

    You have a beautiful little ice plant growing. Don't you love the pretty pink flower?

    I hope your other plants make it through the cold weather. I am so glad it will be 70 degrees soon :-)
