We experienced our first Arizona in 2021. Mother Nature was impressive that year with all sorts of storms hurdled in our direction during Monsoon Season. During the first or second storm the tree in the decorative circle in the middle of our driveway came down.

Original tree after the storm in 2021.

We replaced the tree the following winter with something a little more appropriate to the desert climate. Here’s a photo of the tree in early 2023.

Apparently our new tree is quite happy because it has been growing and blossoming like crazy. It’s adding a good deal of color to the front of the house.

Every morning I look out my office window and see this tree thrive puts me in a sunny mood. It’s a good way to start the day.
