Welcome to my Desert Hot Springs garden.
And, yes, you can have a wonderful garden in the desert.

Zucchini, planted from seed, originally watered each morning.
Because of our summer heat, I water early morning and again at night.
I use Miracle Grow every two weeks and grow in pots of Kellogg planting soil.
I just harvested my first two Zucchini --
there's nothing better than home grown squash.
My cantaloupe, planted from seed, are now the size of a softball.
I water twice a day in summertime.
Same info I do with the other plants and this is one also in a pot.
These are my miracle grown beef steak tomatoes!
A special gift in my garden this morning.
It only lasted a few hours but it was stunning.
From the internet it states it is a Tiger Lily.
It must have been amoung the 200 bulbs I planted some time ago.
It sure made my day when I saw it.
Don't get me wrong, I have my beliefs and faith,
but sometimes you need a little breath of fresh air...
So I garden and share my pics in hopes they might
put a smile on someone else face;
it sure has helped me.
And, anytime you go by, don't hesitate to stop in and say "Hi!"
I have met some terrific neighbors.
Have a wonderful Weekend my friends and neighbors.
This little rose doesn't even care
that it's 123-degrees outside.
