I spotted this home leaving the weather garden a few posts back. It looks to be designed and built by the same person or people as on down the cul-de-sac. Nice, isn't it?
So simple and so southwestern - Tucson is of the desert.

The Sotol R and Mesquite REAR help ground this home to the desert ecoregion.
The young, small tree L of the entry is unknown - to me, it creates visual clutter. But maybe
it will shade the entry better and will blend in? Certainly, it isn't a habitual trash tree that our
HOG would have to throw in!
But what's that in front, along the street?

Even an unknown yucca and a Lady Slipper against the house. A nice mix of flowering, sculpture, color and texture, and so simple. imagine the scent of the informal hedge, as well as the hummingbirds. Especially good, if the smaller trees are appropriate.
