Come visit my garden!

Just a few scenes from the desert this morning.




Hoping the pumpkins keep growing, but as the heat builds, not sure....









Buster sees something outside the gate.....probably bunnies....





Rosemary grows like crazy under this tree.











Flowers in the island. Some thrive, some don't. This winter, I'm going to use this island to grow lettuce.







Behind Buster is oleander. Also known as nightshade. Beautiful, but poisonous. Deadly to humans, dogs, horses. We've let a lot of it die, and have pulled some out. It can grow to 12' or better. Hard to pull out such a beautiful plant, so some still are here.

Sugar wants to go swimming. Yup, we have a pool. Lots o'work. Lots o'fun.



The littlest one in the family.
Enjoy your day!

so very beautiful. my grandparents live in Arizona - the fist time I landed there, straight off the plane, I was shocked. then I grew to learn about, and love the incredible beauty + diversity of the desert. thanks for sharing these photos!

Beautiful pictures! Thank you for sharing !
I always love to see how people live.

A pool is almost a must when you live in a place that's hot, no matter how much work it is , it's worth it!!! :0)

thanks for sharing your day.

Your yard is beautiful! I love the flowers and my husband would love not having to cut grass!

I agree about the grass cutting. Thanks for the look at your yard and dogs. I wish I had a pool this week!
