( Christmas Lights from Two Neighborhoods in Tempe AZ 85282 )

It is a treat to stroll in this highly walkable neighborhood in Tempe AZ any time of the year, especially around Christmas.

Merry Christmas


“This is our Christmas card to the Neighborhood”, shared the homeowners of this Carriage Lane home in Tempe 85282. The collection of lights, music, retractable Christmas figures means a lot of fond memories collected over a period of 38 years. The owners started decorating the front yard when their daughter was 3 years old.

As it gets darker, The street looks magical, like a fairy tale.  The snow man melts down and comes back; soft Christmas songs gently caress the ears.

And now off to Southern Palms neighborhood - the holiday lights here come in perfect unison with the desert landscape. It is always a pleasure to drive by them.

There is probably no native desert cactus that you won't find in this mini-Botanical garden. And now it has its own Christmas Tree, too.

Happy Holidays!

Hi John, thanks for your comment.

I have entered it - at least I think I have, under #166 or nearby ... :)

There is a reason for not decorating the saguaro, or any other cactus. One reason being that these are not the friendliest plants to play with. They can be very friendly to birds and other creatures, who use them as their homes or hotels or a good restaurant stop, saguaros hold an immense amount of water.
