Well, so much for our mild Spring. We're supposed to go over 100 degrees today. Ah, Arizona. But it is a "dry" heat as they say. I bought a new cactus and planted it in my front yard. It's not real big, but it was on sale. The pine tree died. It just could not take the heat. One thing about cactus is this is where they evolved and they're adapted to this climate. Still, it's hard to get things to grow in my yard..
Up north [northern Arizona], they try and get Colorado Blue Spruce trees to grow. Most of them die. They just need more water than they get in this state. Up in Colorado they get a lot more snow and they just don't survive this far south. People like them as they're pretty trees.. But armor plated thorny things like cactus seem to fare better in this area.
