RE: now Pam drought

Is that Leucophyllum frutescens? I never heard cenizo, we call them Texas
ranger here. I have a few of those in my dry garden. I have only watered in
there maybe 2 times since May (not counting the rain we just had a couple
weeks ago) and they are fine. So are the big salvias, the russian sage,
desert willow...in fact, my dry garden is all still blooming and looks good,
much better than the cottage garden. Hmmm, dry adapted plants growing in my
high desert climate...and they look good...and they need almost no
maintenance...careful, I might learn something from this.

Well I will be acquiring a mature cenizo (Texas sage) from a downsizing
neighbor this weekend to fill a hole, so that will help. I hate holes in my
garden. Like a gaping wound to the eye and the soul. And this baby has
laughed at the drought, so I KNOW it will be fine. I left my soaker hose run
at a slow trickle all night to save that St. Augustine up front. There's
just no time when it gets dark so early. They say MAYBE some rain Saturday.
C'mon baby, bring it on!
