Serenity


"If you build it, they will come."  Creating a garden also means creating an inviting place for our local fauna to stop and ponder your work.  Some of us have large yards while others have smaller areas.....but no matter what the size, you can still create an oasis for wildlife to stop and visit.


For the best results, plant native Sonoran species that will attract our desert friends to rest or eat.  I know that bunnies or javelina aren't everyone's favorites at times, but they do make a nice addition to a beautiful desert garden.


Until tomorrow.....

  4. Jen, I love chipmunks, but you can keep them over there. Or maybe we could trade some packrats for chipmunks, yes?:)
