Cactus & Rock Garden


We've had rain on and off for the past few days, not too conducive for good Jeeping, so we've contented ourselves by doing some work around the house. We had a small cactus and rock garden but we decided we wanted to expand it. We've moved some dirt to elevate it and create mounds to make it look a bit more natural.

It seems most people living out in the desert acquire "treasures" they've found while exploring the area. Our treasures are beginning to accumulate, so we thought it best to begin organizing them into a garden type atmosphere. This is just the beginning of what we hope to make a real focal point in our back yard. We enjoy sitting out there and remembering where each rock and cactus came from.
These simple things are what our life here is all about.
