Once a year the torch cactus bursts into bloom and as you can see, mine have just opened to create this lush desert bouquet. To add to the joy I have added a solar pineapple to welcome guests to my new home. If you would like to know why the pineapple is a symbol of hospitality, click here. It's a wonderful story!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
