Christmas Cactus in Cave Creek and Scottsdale

By
Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Elite Group Tempe AZ Tel: 480-966-9353 SA585680000

We love to watch the creativity in getting our Arizona cacti into the mood of Christmas Decoration.

Very pleasantly surprised at this cheerful place, we stopped the car for this lovely front yard, where it seemed  it was full of Santa helpers. We were on our way to my land listing in Cave Creek hills. Most of the homes around here are on 5-acre lots. 

We loved the festive undertones of the Bed and Breakfast place across the street, too.

 

 

Walking downtown Scottsdale, we saw more decorated desert plants - a whole row of agaves. 

     

We grew up in a four-season climate and December usually had good amount of snow. So, at home, our Christmas decoration always has some snow activities around it.

This is my entry for the December challenge initiated by Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker and Carol Williams.

Hi Brian England , I guess, cacti are our version of Christmas pines - both have needles. 😃 I love seeing how the cacti are decorated. The one in front of my office window is, too.

Hi Steffy,
I've only spent one Christmas in Arizona. It is way different than where I live, where there is often snow on the ground and frigid temperatures. It does make me smile to see the cactus decorated with Santa hats.   Thanks so much for your entry!
