First a FYI, temps are just about back to normal....Yes!
Took my wife for her doctors appointment in Boise. The trip is about a 110 miles to the west and is about 1400 lower in elevation than it is here. Boise is a Zone 6b/7 depending on the zone maps, but I would say a long term zone 6b.
Looking over Mountain Home towards the south at the Owyhee Mountains.
I one lived at the base of that range, a nice comfortable zone 7.
As for the norm, I could not stop for yucca pics, but found these by the place we ate in Boise.
A nice Yucca rostrata!
And what looked to me as a clump of Y. filimentosa and recurvifolia.
The City has some nice Y. recurvifolias, but I can never stop for pics!
And closer to home, the rest stop by Bliss.
And just to show people just a small portion of the windmills going up around the state.
Not sure what I think about it?
I know they kill lots of birds of prey here!
