We just got back from a three week trip to see eight different national parks, mostly in Utah. In today's podcast, we discuss our impression of the deserts we saw, and the plants that live there.

Fun podcast! Glad you had a nice trip! Green Grin!

I've seen photos of living fences made with the Ocotillo. Too fun!

Isn't it! Green Grin!
I'm sure it wouldn't work here, otherwise I'd already have one!

The flowers are also a hummingbird favorite.

The Ocotillo is definitely on my "one day" list of plants to try.
