Winter in Arizona

Holiday decor in the desert

Today’s post is from Melissa Grosso in Fountain Hills, Arizona. We’ve visited her garden before and even had a chance to visit her sister’s garden in California. Today she is sharing some of her cold but sunny garden all decked out for the winter holidays.

    Hey Melissa, I absolutely love the charm and warmth of your AZ gardens. I just checked out your former post and your property is quite wonderful. You have made Christmas come alive in your desert landscape. We live in Tucson, so I truly appreciate the beauty you have surrounded yourself with in the beige of our beautiful desert.

    Just a delight to behold! I particularly like the last 2 photos with the buck in the bamboo and the deer in the cactus. You certainly have that special something that brings joy to the eyes. Happy New Year to you and yours!
