I became distracted on the way to my hike, since I waited too long to depart, and the sun was now up. Why?
Forms first, then flowering.
A windows and sunroof down morning, and the iPhone is ready.
desert plant freak who wants to turn Albuquerque I mean Las Cruces into Phoenix landscape architect designed medians, where the monsoon season is bringing out an unexpected surprise in the way of flowers.
I plead guilty, except the “…who – – – Phoenix…” part.
Others’ slighting of me aside, Yucca faxoniana, Leucophyllum zygophyllum ‘Cimarron’, Agave neomexicana, and Aristida purpurea do the trick. But now, the 2nd plant is stealing the show.
A recheck of my plans is in order, as I’m almost certain my design had a mass of purple in the background median, not a few. Like how my low entry wall was deleted…
I never did get in more than a mile of walking, before the best, more rugged and workout parts. I had to go home and get ready for work. Next time!
