Anticipating a Garden

For months I’ve been poring over issues of Sunset Magazine, enthralled with water features, gardens of herbs and vegetables, borders of low water-friendly shrubs, brilliant blasts of desert-happy flowers, grasses and trees.

Desert Landscape

Desert is Different

We’re about to move to our first new house, after nearly three decades in a mobile home with barely enough room for a few trees and oleander bushes. The anticipation is killing me!

I’m also realizing that I know very little about gardening in general and desert gardens in particular. It’ll be a new experience for me and probably for the vict- er… plants.
