As I have no talent for writing I usually post pictures with a title, except of course about the wonderful dogs and cats that share our lives. Then I could write forever and bore everyone to death, especially since my ability to write is "I have a dog. His name is Spot."
The pictures you see daily are either taken at our home outside of Tucson in the desert and I do mean desert, but the photos of the the plants that are in decorative rock and those taken at the pond, are taken at my office complex in town.
I can relate to those of you "back east" and elsewhere, when I moved to Arizona I was used to grass lawns and had never seen decorative rock used in yards. Of course, in the desert water is not plentiful so using colored rock and native plants for landscaping is encouraged.
The pictures of the snow on the cactus, the mountains in the distance, are taken from home. We have sand and cactus everywhere and a constant wind blowing. It's not for everyone, but I love it. The night sky with its' million stars is magnificent. Although we do have desert critters to deal with at times, we can go to sleep with the songs of the coyotes. We do have roses, some beautiful pink flowers ( I have no idea what they are called) and of course, the cactus flowers come in all colors.
I would like to thank all of you for visiting my blog and special thanks to Desiree from Driftwood Ramblings, she can be found at http://driftwoodramblings.blogspot.com/. She knows more about plants than I will know in a lifetime and her blogspot is AMAZING! Check it out. Concerning the most recent picture, I will ask the landscapers at my workplace about it . I am sure they will know.
For those of you that live elsewhere and would like to see more pictures of the area where I live, please let me know and I will take more photos of what interests you. I can do that I am just not a writer as you can see. :0)
Thank you all again for visiting. you are very special to me. Have a wonderful day!
