Vinegaroons do have a bite that can become infected. It gives off a vinegar-like scent when disturbed. They are relatively harmless, compared with some of the BIG-BAD-BEASTS of W TEXAS. It is called a whiptail scorpion but does not have the terrible sting that a real scorpion has. They are a beautiful, shiny, black color and quite pretty in an ugly sort of way.

Is that anything like the whiptail scorpion

Barbara, thanks for expanding my mind.  I have never heard of a vinegaroon.  Looks amazing!

We have slugs bigger than my thumb.  I don't like them.

Liquid is falling from the sky!!! If I remember correctly, it is called rain.

Joan, oh gosh I hope it 'bullies' its way completely around my pavers and throughout the whole area.  The little green leaves look so innocent at this point.:) We'll see how it feels after hot direct sun and 100 temps.

Randal, the beauty of the desert can be astonishing. When we got orders for El Paso, William Beaumont Army Medical Center, I cried. All I could remember was driving through on our west to east journey across the southern tier of the USA and seeing the drab, dirty, shabby, dry place that looked like hell. It took only a month or so to realize what a beautiful place the desert can be. I turned my garden into an incredibly lovely patch of Earth. Don took photos from a plane trip over the housing area and our garden stood out like a green oasis in the desert.

We had pet horned toads, well they weren't pets, really, just happy members of my little patch. We had a jumping spider that provided entertainment by waving at us as we worked in the kitchen. There was a vinegaroon that lived in our woodpile and looked like it could kill an elephant. A snake lived there, too, and took care of lots of insects. A mocking bird lived in the tree fort my kids built and enjoyed the fort as much as the kids. 

That little patch of Earth turned out to be a place full of wonder.

Barbara, do keep me informed on how you like Dichondra. I have some reservations because of it possibly being a bully. There are spots where being a bully is not a problem, so I will keep this in mind. Thanks for the information.

Sentient ... your radishes look like they are on sterioids :) You are a gardening inspiration.

Randall ... we were suppose to have thunderstorms yesterday and today. We got zero in my area ... I gave up at 9:00 last night and watered. 

Lovely pics guys!

Just thought I'd throw in a desert "garden" photo from last week. I'm currently waiting for some rain the weathermen predicted.
