While eating breakfast before another weekend in my office, I realized there’s a garden tour – starting one block away. “It should be short, so I’ll be designing in a few hours, even as another perfect 85F day goes by outside”.
The tour was sponsored by the El Paso Cactus and Rock Club and the Native Plant Society of New Mexico / El Paso Chapter.

Over 7 hours later, I ended up with over 250 photos, even missing 4 of the 12 homes. Not great like those of the Wildflower Center or Phoenix Home and Garden, but good – and only $5. Notable was how the homes were more modest, but with far better design and plant choices than most larger homes use, all over town. Sadly, few people attended the tour, but those I saw seemed mostly connected, getting ideas.
I’ll try to post more images and thoughts on each garden soon, but the day job calls. So does bed!
