Some Vegas Pics

Post by Jay-Admin »

Here's a few pics from my Las Vegas trip a couple weeks ago. Sorry I didn't get
to take my usual amount of pictures. I'll get a ton more this summer. :)

I'll start with the bad first.

Here's a couple chopped trachys. :(

Some good looking palms.

Love this tshirt. Didn't buy it because flying home alone is no fun. :)

Why on earth would those Trachies have been chopped? :x

Good to see they're finally backing off the Phoenix hurricane haircuts; they look much better now.

Bet it felt good to see some sunshine and warmth.
Thanks Jay.

I have a pic of those same trachies from years ago, they looked in bad shape then. I would post them but they are on film. I was thinking they needed water. :roll:
Strange to see so many trachies in Vegas, it's like one of the hottest and driest towns, but yet there is many trachies there and even a few in Yuma AZ. :?

Here's to all the global warming pushers, may your winters be -30 below and four feet of snow in your driveway. Because I want you happy.

Yeah I noticed those same trachies years before looking pretty bad.

I kinda remember some of the light show. :)

Barb, It was great being in the sun and the temp being around 18c. :) I'm
getting really tired of this cloudy weather. :(

That's hard thing, dealing with the weather when you get back. :x

Really amazing to think of Trachys making it in the desert(with help of course)after what I saw
happen to them from drought and heat here -that is nowhere near what they would see in the desert!

I concur with the surprise at Trachies in intense heat. But I've seen them, there and also in North Texas and they do surprisingly well in extreme heat.
