A fast diversion, enroute to an après design charette social.

With Piece of Eden showing an array of SoCal lawnlessness (her great term), I had to join in!
My ecoregion’s climate is more harsh, so many soft succulents that thrive on the coastal slopes in California may not have a prayer here, at least year-round…we compensate with grand natives Opuntia and Yucca, plus woody desert shrubs and trees. Lawnless in the desert is often older, with less hardscape and site features than theirs. For now…
