When visitors see our arid plants, they are surprised. We tell them, it is either very foolish or very brave to try to have a desert in 95 inches of rain. And in truth, many don't make it. But some do, and they are a wonderful contrast to the lush tropical plants that dominate the gardens.
An Arizona supporter recently sent some cactus to add to the garden, a gift from the real desert, and he asked us to take some photos of our arids to show to the nurseryman. So, today we took a flurry of photos and offer them to you.
Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
