And with the world ending later this month, maybe some plants just can't wait?
So, after reading this, please visit Pam and enjoy others' Foliage Follow-up posts, to regain your cheer - here.
|The vertical growth and aromatic foliage are happy on 'Tuscan Blue' Rosemary. Often|
a sprig gets broken off and simply broken into some olive oil for dipping bread.
|One of the numerous, new Chisos Rosewood plants along the freeway. I prefer the fine foliage on this species over the more common Arizona Rosewood. But both stay a nice deep green all winter, contrasting the gray and brown twigginess beyond.|
|But without irrigation, the wild is not so verdant these days.|
Opuntia valida is really dying in the wild, and the brown
plants either side are usually a nice olive green right now,
including Hairy Mountain Mahogany L.
|And the plant on the right of that last cactus is Shrub or Desert Live Oak...live...not this dry winter. More so when you like oaks enough, that your design practice is even named Quercus!|
|Until it gets a more suitable name, 'Cristiani Spineless' Prickly Pear at my own house just got watered - but too late?|
|How nice, at dusk's low sun angle, with our Sandia Mountains looming over 3 miles beyond. (and the countless, very much dying cacti too far to see!)|
|The owners of this house already have their windmills strung with Christmas lights.|
