Christmas in Phoenix


Hey all you Gardeners east and north of Phoenix AZ,

I wish that I could send you pictures of all the golden trees here.  
Some are golden from leaves about to drop. And some are golden because 
they are Acacias and full of yellow puff ball flowers.  Different 
seasons for different trees at one point in time.

This is part of Christmas in Phoenix.  Oley!

Happy Holidays,

Pauline
