Nature Notes Thursday


This is a Palo Verde Tree. Palo Verde means green wood in Spanish. When the tree blooms you know summer is here temps in the high 90's. Ugh I do not like Summer.

I hadn't heard of the Palo Verde Tree but it certainly earns the 'green' title...You have summer temps in the high 90's? Wow...We might get a rare day with a temp of 90, but not usually that hot..but it does get humid...Thank you for participating Moosh.... Michelle

This is my first visit, very enjoyable. Loved the story about the soup (I'll try it!) and your mom's poem. Beautiful photos, too!

Cry my favorite season is fall also.
Michelle we can get over 100 but it is dry. It is like walking in an oven.
Sara thanks for visiting and your complements. Come back soon

I saw Palo Verde for the first time on a recent visit to the Anza Borrego desert, it is a beautiful tree when it is in bloom.
