It was a few degrees warmer today than yesterday. The mercury peaked in the low sixties almost ten degrees below the normal temperature. Shortly after sunset the wind began to howl from the north. It was like a mysterious switch was thrown from calm to storm force winds with gusts even higher. Tomorrow and Thursday are forecast to have highs in the fifties with overnight lows near to below freezing.
Today while I was out and about I stopped at the Ethel M Cactus Garden. I wanted to check out the garden before they were decorated for Christmas, but it wasn’t to be. The garden was already decorated. The formal lighting and opening for the holiday season is a week from today. Many of the lights were lit and all of the blow up figures were inflated.
I walked through the garden enjoying all of the brightly colored blossoms on many of the plants. I went a little crazy taking pictures of blossoms and Christmas decorations. It was nice to see the blossoms in the sun light. They won’t be visible next time I visit at night to see the Christmas lights.
Some of the Christmas decorations waiting for nightfall to really stand out.
Colorful blossoms on many of the bushes in the garden.
