I so love Ocotillos. I might change Gloria's name, but that is just what came to mind, so there you are!!

Below is a poor picture of a 'shoestring Acacia'....most because there is not to the 'shoestring' part yet. Give it a few years.

From My Front Door

So soft!!

Lamb's Ears


A lot of these plants will spread and cover quite a bit of ground!!

And amazingly, this is a Ficus Tree. It has outgrown the atrium area by my front door. I love it so much. It shades the front door area so well in the summer.

I'm just thrilled with my new yard!! Unfortunately, Mr. Ike and I have had a falling out over the property line. I've had 2 surveys done and he hasn't had any. He basically told me he 'was just protecting his property' and totally disagreed with the measurements. I was totally devastated about it. Now, I just sad. Losing a dear friend is certainly is a high price to pay for a yard.

Heh, my mom has a rake for sale in her garage sale; Denny and I call them Arizona lawn mowers after seeing them in use for smoothing the gravel "lawns" out west.

Your first picture of the "ice plant" or "I don't know II" is portulaca or here in Ohio we call it a "moss rose"-one of my favorites. And there's nothing more attractive than a full bush/tree of bougainvillea in full bloom.

Sorry to hear about your rift with Mr. Ike--I hope you two can work it out.

Super lawn. Love those flowers. I have a bunch of flower photos from Darjeeling going up in the next few days. My friend Netta in England likes flower photos, so I try to do them for her. So ya'll come. We're more or less and wet, foggy and humid. Rainy. More rainy.
