Trees & Bees
Does anyone remember these trees? I posted a photo of these same trees two years ago when I visited this place out in Cave Creek Arizona. You can see that post here. Sunday was a gorgeous fall day in the Phoenix area, perfect weather for taking a drive somewhere. I headed north out toward Cave Creek and Carefree and along the way I passed this place so I decided to stop. It's grown by quite a bit since I was there two years ago and there is more construction going on with all kinds of different styles of landscaping on display. The trees are Aloe Dichotomy, native to Africa.
There was of course, a wide variety of cactus for sale on the property including some barrel cacti that were in full bloom. This one was especially popular with the bees.
On my way out, I noticed this building that looks like it's for display purposes. It made a very nice southwestern scene with all those cactus and the adobe construction. With all the construction going on at this place, I'll have to make a point of visiting again in another year or two and see what they've done.
