A dry, but frosty December.
Cylindropuntia, garden volunteer.
The pond has been fun too watch over the past month. It has froze, and thawed a couple of times now.
I went outside today hoping to get a few pics of the late December snow, but with a high of 39F most of it melted. We only had the one snow storm, dropping a whopping total of 3 inches on the ground. For the majority of the month most of the days were covered white from frost.
Echinocereus triglochidiatus inermis
I had several Mule deer visit the garden this winter, and one thought the cactus fruit tasted good.
Opuntia engelmannii x basilaris
I hope too transplant this Yucca brevifolia (sucker) later this season.
