Today it was to be 111 degrees in Phoenix. We hoped it would be cooler in Flagstaff. It was 90.
The arboretum was dry, the plants are struggling to thrive. Not yet recovered from winter some have a look of dry frosted leaves. Aspen trees have their fresh green leaves rattling in the breeze. Chimpmunks and song birds scamper about. If the rain comes the penstemon garden and the wildflowers will be beautiful in another month. Right now the lake is low, the paths are dusty and I sit on the bench and wonder what will we do if the rain doesn’t come?
