November 2009 ~ Plants and big rocks make a difference.
I am amazed how 2 years have changed my garden. What
great growth. The solid blue agave parryii is huge and has
sent out about 20 little pups from which I will make new
plants. The variagated agave is also sends out pups. We
added a chair and a bench and other garden ornaments.
October 2007 ~
The bare bush in the back becomes a magnificent
jatropha gossypifolia with leaves and berries. Also note the
euphorbia against the house on the right. Just a few years
later and it covers the house and is about 7' tall. A mother
mocking bird built a nest and put her baby inside for safety.
The jatropha gossypifolia started filling in, in May. It's now
the end of November 2008 and still very lush. The area is filled
with multiple species making it an interesting garden. Area 2
The jatropha gossypifolia in it's fullest with an aeonium in
the center front and an uncarina right front, a Yucca right
rear and firesticks in between. I will be moving the uncarina
in the spring. I never expected the jatropha and the uncarina
to get as large as they did. It's fun to move plants and change
what I have in the garden.

|Area 2: |
As you can see the euphorbia tirucalli has really filled
in and now covers the right side of the house
Area 3 ~ The purple plant is a tradescantia, the big green
plant center front is a euphorbia and the plant with the red
trim behind and to the left is aloe striata and again I have
Golden Barrel Cactus.
