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.
We recently visited friends in Santa Fe, NM and while we were there, we took a stroll around the Historic Square section. As one might anticipate, there was an abundance of beautiful planters surrounding this tourist attraction.
The planter in the top picture had a light green Potato Vine and what appeared to be Papyrus. Annuals filled in the rest of the arrangement.
The second picture was just one example of beautifully filled hanging baskets dangling from the light posts. It was quite warm during the days we visited and I want to know how often they water those planters and how do they do it!
