Arizona Plants

By on

I was recently in Arizona for two weeks visiting family. It was an enjoyable trip and I was lucky to be able to do some gardening in the evening when it wasn’t quite 110 degrees and visited several greenhouses (including Avocado Nursery). While I was ready to see a lot of cactus I also came across a lot more succulents, citrus trees, and flowering bushes than I expected.

There’s many plant seeing destinations left on the bucket list for next time I return, but for now I am enjoying readjusting to the greenery and humidity back in Delaware.
