Isn’t it interesting how the best laid plans go awry? I had great plans for the beginning of this week. I was getting ready to build my flower garden. I have had visions of a garden filled with both annual and perennial flowers suitable for cutting for bouquets.
My garden however, had other plans……
Yesterday evening, I noticed that one of my ‘Desert Museum’ Palo Verde trees was leaning against the fence that blocks off the side yard. I call this area a ‘yard’ and not a ‘garden’ because it is where our dog run is located. My husband and I rushed out to see what had happened and our tree had fallen part way over. The night before, had brought a monsoon storm to our neighborhood and the high winds brought the tree down. It was only held up by the fence.
I was honestly surprised that this tree had fallen. I loved this tree…..it’s beautiful yellow flowers blooming throughout the spring, it’s bright green trunk and branches and the welcome shade it brought to my desert garden.
