Photos of Desert Garden 4 Years Later

4 years later

The above photos were taken last week (August 2006). It has been 4 years since planting. This summer Tucson has enjoyed a tremendous monsoon season which continues as I write this post. There is nothing like rainwater to bring out the best in your plants. Every morning I enjoy walking through our garden and marvel at its wonders, which are new every day. As you look at these recent photos, compare them with the earlier photos in my prior blogs. The saguaro cactus was a Christmas gift from Judith, my sister-in-law, given to us about 15 years ago. "Aunt Judith", as we affectionally call this cactus, was about 2 feet tall when we planted it.
