It is citrus picking time here in Arizona. These lemons are so ready to be picked. We no longer have our citrus trees and I am not sad about that at all. It is a lot of work to make sure all the fruit is off so roof rats (look those nasty guys up) don't get in your yard and house.
These rocks were part of yard decor. When you hear about the floods here in Arizona, these are the rocks that go flying in the waters. Very deadly but they do make for some pretty yard decorations.
Not sure if these are weeds or ground cover. This covered quite a bit of this persons yard. I do believe they have a flower on them in the spring time. I will walk back by there in a couple of months to see.
This plant is a dwarf palm tree. They do not get very big and add a nice green touch year round to a yard. Notice the rock decor again? It is a thing here. The reason their grass is all green is it is winter rye. It will stay nice and green until our temps go back to then 80's. then their Bermuda grass will come out of dormancy and green up their yard again.
A very dead tree. I don't know why people let dead trees stay in their yard. But it makes for fun photo.
I have no idea what kind of tree this is. It is very lacy and airy looking. It stays that way year round.
And of course, there are cactus here in yards. This is the barrel cactus. As you can see it already bloomed and those yellow pods on top are the end result. You do not want to have a run in with these babies.
So that is all of the photos that turned out from my walk. I will be walking again on Wednesday and will try and find more fun photos to take and post. Oh, and yes, our sky is really that blue. We see that color at least 335 days a year. It is the reason I get so excited when it rains.
Time for lunch and to switch the laundry into the dryer. I still have some decluttering to get done today. Big Brothers Big Sisters are coming on Monday next week for a pick up. I want to make sure it is worth their while. LOL
Until next time.................happy crafting!!!!!!!!!!!!
