We finally got our trees. We were prepared and ready to pick out the trees at the Moon Valley Nursery on Arizona and Germann in Chandler, but at the last minute realized I forgot my coupon that could have saved me $22. It was towards the end of a long day, it was cloudy and pleasantly cool with a soothing breeze blowing in the air. We chose 7 trees: Raywood Ash, Chinese Elm, Arizona Elm, Jacaranda, Navel Orange, Lemon tree and a Ficus. We knew some were deciduous, all of them except for the last three, and they were probably going to consume a lot of water, but we didn’t care. We were going to finally have trees in our back yard! They gave us 7 flags to put in our back yard which I felt was going to be a fun task. They will dig in November. This gives me time to get quotes on drip irrigation. I wanted to do it myself, but with the baby, I didn’t think I realistically had the time to do it within a week, which is what the nursery people told us is a good time frame to install the lines. Once those are installed, we need to spray the perimeter of our home. I saw a black widow in our front door and back patio the other day. I can’t imagine what would happen if they got into our house or had little babies.
