I hope you enjoy the desert's early spring offerings!
|Winter Jasmine / Jasminum nudiflorum, catching the remaining, fresh morning light. While the other plants, being taller, are still catching it in a fuller manner.|
|A Daffodils-only bed - too bad for the owners, this is it...then 11-1/2 months of you-know-what. But so sentimental and showy right now, how could I not include it? They did embrace the SW a little on the chile ristra!|
El Paso -
|Mexican Plum / Prunus mexicana|
The maintenance crews at UTEP removed the underplantings of Deergrass...but alone, this is
still a great choice for a shady oasis - an urban canyon in the desert.
|The fragrance was unearthly - subtly sweet. It's spring, finally!|
|Mexican Redbud / Cercis mexicana AKA C. canadensis var. mexicanum|
|Tough but pretty!|
|Mexican Starleaf Orange / Choisya dumosa - did I say underused? Thrives in Abq, too - all 2 of them.|
|Nice, soft, springy|
Hope springs eternal
