"Martha, as far as I know, the blue ones are just a common hybrid petunia sold in the nurseries around here. Amazingly, all of these flowers survived a severe cold snap here where the temp was 5 degrees with the wind chill. Around here that's…"

March Flowers

"These are actually winter flowers that survived and are thriving right now before we get our summer heat. Mom can't water as much anymore, so we might not have too many summer flowers this year, although there is a bed of wildflowers that are…"

Finally finished raking up all of the Mulberry and Ash leaves. In Spring we will have wildflowers growing under the Ash tree. Next big project will be cutting all of the branches off the Mulberry tree. Then it will be time to till the lawn for new Tiff grass. It will be so nice to have a new lawn again.

I ranch in both San Juan and Murrieta Cal, our weather is much like yours at our Murrieta ranch. I have two wonderful Wisteria that are about 40 plus years old that climb my corral shelter. I also have equally as old Lilac bushes that are planted around my home, so I know both would do well for you in AZ. Spring time when both are in bloom the sweet scent is almost overwhelming and I say almost, because I seem to not be able to soak in enough of it. I love to make Lilac sugar and give as gifts thought out the year. Annie

Thanks for the kind words, Lorelei. I appreciate it!  Hope you are enjoying the holidays. (It's snowing here in NJ and I am dreaming of spring...)

The garden where I work belongs to my parents, who are in their eighties. I have been busy fixing it up for almost 6 years now. It is truly my secret garden, which was in a state of neglect when I first started. It has now been landscaped and planted and is an ever changing scape with new flowers several times a year.

A lot of you have mentioned that you can't wait for Spring. Here in Arizona, the Indians called this the Land of Two Springs (one in Spring and one in Fall). It is beautiful here all the way from October to June. Then it gets hot. And I mean really hot. Then the plants struggle unless they get a lot of extra water. Every place has its advantages. I admire the gardens that grow in cold country, and the green splendor. It is so wonderful to live in a place that has plenty of moisture for…
