Finally our night time temperatures in the metro Phoenix, AZ area have fallen low enough to kick off the fall/winter bulb season.  Blooming today is Zephranthes 'La buffa rosa'. Several oxalis are starting to push up along with Scadoxus.  Haemanthus are looking better and new leaves are replacing the old weathered ones.  Aloe seeds I have just planted are coming up en masse.  But sadly, I am seeing the first signs of Bursera microphylla going dormant.  These beautiful fragrant trees have been a joy all summer remaining green and fresh looking when all else looking very fried.  Celeste in the Sonoran Desert.  Daytime temperature today 103 degrees F and nighttime temperature around 76 degrees F but cooler temperatures are on the way.
