To keep our garden inspiration flowing, I will post pictures of flowers, trees and other plants that I have found pretty and/or interesting for one reason or another. Many of the pictures will be of drought-tolerant or xeriscape plants because I live and grow in the Sonoran Desert.
I hope these photographs stimulate your creativity and keep you enthusiastic about the wonderful world of horticulture. Please feel free to share your thoughts with me by leaving a comment below.
While I generally write about the plants in our Sonoran Desert garden, I also talk about some of my related hobbies that have a “naturish” leaning. Regular readers will note my interest in bird identification and photography.
The other day, the bird below came walking across our patio at a brisk pace. Since it was in the shade, I couldn’t get a very good picture. It was also darting in and out of our patio furniture.
Finally, however, it moved out a bit into our sunny desert backyard. Here it is!
The roadrunner is a very skittish bird in my experience. It has very nice eye markings as you can see. It also has a tuft on top if its head that it raises from time-to-time when it is wary, but I couldn’t get a snap of it; perhaps next time.
