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.

What's in bloom in my yard

Gopher weed
This is supposed to repel gophers but I don't have any so I can't verify this. The sulfurous yellow flowers really brighten up the yard.

I wonder if they repel moles. Since we tiled the yard and dried it up we are now infested with moles.

The rocks are beautifully colored out there...that's what I like about the desert.

We are also infested with moles. I think it's because we had such a mild winter and they had plenty of time underground to make lots of baby moles. Luckily we have a wonderful solution to our mole problem. We have cat hunters who are expert at digging the little buggers up and bringing them in the house as presents. teehee
