I am a lover of horticulture, gardening and the environment. At age 8, I sent away for a package of Zinnia seeds for 10 cents and I've been hooked ever since. After 25 years of being self-employed, I retired. That only lasted 4 years and I now work in a water conservation program: I buy grass from homeowners who are willing to convert to desert landscaping and lose that thirsty green stuff. I pursue what interests me and you can blame my sister for getting me into this blogging thing.

Desert mallow

Desert mallow
This is almost a weed, it grows along the road in disturbed soil but what a winner. I have this volunteer in my front yard. I think it's related to hollyhocks. I also have a red one and a pink one. I love this plant.
