Desert Garden: 102 in the shade

Mesquite tree on the patio

Desert patio

I spent some time out here this morning watching a hummingbird that sat on a little branch in the shade. I can only assume it liked being in the shade of this big mesquite tree, which I planted in about 2006 and which has become enormous. It is so incandescently bright in the sun it’s surprising things don’t spontaneously combust.
