Thank you Dave for ATP where I could share.

And I would also like to thank both Trish & Sharon for making this possible too & doing such a lovely job of it.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I loved it too! What a wonderful ad for xeriscaping! The xeriscaping in my country tends to be so boring, with everything in one of two colors: mauvish-gray or grayish-mauve. Smiling

In your garden, nothing looks "economical." You have vibrant and luxurious-looking blooms. Some look positively exotic.

Thank you Zuzu. I hope I've shown people that with a little thought & research xeri doesn't have to be boring.

Wow! What a show! Carefully planned, well researched, and a beautiful success! Hard work for sure, but so rewarding! The aqua textured concrete walls made me think I was looking at the ocean in the background of several of the photos.

Thanks to Sharon, Trish, and Dave for all your work to bring this to us on ATP. I'm really enjoying these garden tours.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Thanks Mary! And that color is called "Sailor's Sky" --- very appropriate don't you think?
