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.

Right click where you want the picture.  click on the icon to the right of "LINK" above.  Then an "ADD IMAGE BOX" will pop-up with a couple of options.  I usually "Choose File" "FROM MY COMPUTER" & from my "Desktop", where I've previously placed it.

My pink honeysuckle is in full bloom, if I knew how to post a picture l would. And the snowball bush and one of the clematis. The clematis started out a beautiful robins egg blue, with pink edging, but has turned purple over the last three years. Almost any blue flowers, and some white ones, turn purple. I think my soil is to alkaline.

Joan, I'm putting in Dichondra.  Originally wanted wooly thyme but couldn't find any locally and too much in a hurry to order online. Stopped by Home Depot this a.m. and got two more packages. And I'll take your advice Randall.  A planting I go ...
