And Make Our Garden Grow...

We're neither pure nor wise nor good
We'll do the best we know
We'll build our house and chop our wood
And make our garden grow

~ Leonard Bernstein

Can life be this beautiful?

At first glance I thought that was Ocatillo, but what is that long green stick-like plant in middle of photo???

Hi Julie,
The flowers are Desert Marigold (Baileya multiradiata), then Lady Slipper (Pedilanthus macrocarpus), then Baja Fairy Duster (Calliandra californica) in the front. The photo is posterized using PS Elements.

Aiyana, what a beautiful grouping of plants and flowers, Complimentary colors, varied heights and different textures all make for a lovely scene.

Thank you for your blog...just found it, recently, and I am finding it very helpful. I had my backyard landscaped with cacti and desert plants...completed just this week! (Well, sort of, I am still working on it...but the landscaper is outta here!) :)

Love, Mary L.
