Low Maintenance Gardening

Sometimes it's just smarter to use garden art instead of trying to keep things growing here in the southwest desert.  This cactus requires very little water to thrive.  They make some really amazing ironwork pieces.

I wish someone would make me a bunch of garden art tomato plants that grow real tomatoes! Or garden art flowers that really bloom.

I love this picture. I really love the sparkly containers, too.

It's really very pretty sitting under those palo verde trees ~ nice color contrast.

Hehehe! Some days this kind of garden can be most appealing. :)

I think it looks fantastic! I love the shape of agave plants and, oddly enough, rusty iron, and I'm useless in the garden — so this is perfect for me! ;)
