How Many Gardens?

We are very lucky to be alive. Whether your beliefs embrace a God or science, there can be little disagreement. Life is wondrous. I am devoted to protecting birds. That is why I recycle feathers. There are other concerns. Take flowers. A pot filled with lantana will attract butterflies, moths, hummingbirds and these will propagate, filling the food chain with promise.

The firecracker plant is starting to bloom. I'll share it here when it's in full display. We only started gardening this summer. School, starting a business, were taking over life and we decided having a garden was just a necessary spiritual undertaking. Building a garden is actually a lot like building a new business. First there is chaos.

When we're asked why we live in the desert, we consider the beauty that is here. In the photo above you can see the moon on the left in the distance. Cuttings from succulents progress on the terrace wall and the last of the daybirds graze.
