“Desert Garden” Excerpts from a Photo Shoot

As a follow-up to my “A Walk in the Desert” two weeks ago, I have attached the final two shots I wanted to share from that hike.  The first one shows that plantings and a garden are possible even in a desert.  There is a lot of use of rock, stone and pots, but everything is lined up in a visually inviting way.  The trees provide the much-needed shade along the walkway and create an environment of tranquility. The second shot is a close up of the potted plants. The irrigation is provided internally through the posts and the pots. The plants are native to the desert and are naturally drought resistant.  I included these shots not only for the aesthetics of the garden, but to highlight with planning and thought, even a desert can have a garden type element to it. Enjoy!!
