Nature's regeneration in the desert
I decided to do a little photographic demonstration of the regeneration of trees here in the desert southwest. I've mentioned before that our trees start showing fall colors in December and start losing their leaves in January. Above is a photo looking up into one of the trees that line my driveway. As you can see the tree has lost most of it's leaves.
When the buds for the tree's new foliage start popping out, I'll take another photo to show you how quickly the trees recover from their winter hibernation. It's interesting to me how these plants have adjusted their lifecycle to the desert weather.
