I definitely see winter coming to the desert. It's 63 this morning, what you could even call chilly. No wonder every time I was in the Northwest I could tell an Arizonian a mile away. They were always wearing the big jackets when it was 60 degrees outside. I may even have to turn on the fireplace!
Here's a view of the huge tree I'm always pruning. It would be massive if I let it go, especially this year with all the rain. The branches have been known to grow as long as my RV cover that lives behind it. It also whacks the roof and the chimney of the house when it's windy. Be careful if you walk under it, you will end up with a huge thorn in your head, not to mention that it LOVES to pull your hair, just like a mean little kid!! Be sure and duck!!
