Wow, how lucky you are, photo ops everywhere, I love wildlife, even rattlers make good images (preferably with a telephoto) Hopefully we might see some wildlife photos on your page? the one of your dog is adorable, what a great face. That is quite a transition you have made, from here to there, right now TO is covered in snow and bloody freezing!! I might have to go to Allans Gardens this weekend for a dose of natural color and a few photo ops, this grisaille world is starting to make me edgy.
Penny the Echinopsis candicans is better known as the Argentine Giant the flowers are nocturnal bloomers and if it was really hot it would not last but if the day is cool and cloudy it will bloom for a week or so, intoxicating fragrance, just a spectacular plant. Many of the desert plants offer an annual blaze of color. After living in Toronto for many years I expected sand but have been amazed at not only the plant life but the wild life too. In our front yard in the past year we have a fountain that has been visited by coyotes,a herd of javelinas(desert pig) rabbits, rattlesnakes, giant tarantula, gila monster and believe it or not in the heat of the summer two very large mule deer, not to mention the two juvenile bald eagles in the back yard. Nothing surprises me any more
Thanks John, does that wonderful plant have a name? Do you mean the flower blooms once and dies ... how bizarre. It is so nice to see a southern, dry garden landscaped with native plants, even though I am an English country garden type myself. There is currently a series on HGTV, "Around the world in 80 gardens" and the host is entranced by gardens that use native plants and Australia and New Zealand and other exotic climes have showcased some amazing gardens.
Who would ever had thought that maybe there was something to all those cat people we scoffed at over the years? :)
I had a black Lab when "the cat" entered the picture so I know what you mean about the trickyness of it all. :)
He is laying on me at this moment as I try to type around him. A wonderful excuse for typos.
