If we can't live in the Bend just yet, we can at least create a little bit of it in our own yard.
Kman worked all weekend in the front flower bed, removing the outsized "foundation" shrubs that came with the house. Out with the old boxwoods, in with the new yuccas.
We (Kman is wanting to know which "we" that would be *grin*) planted a spanish dagger, blue agave, lechuguilla, sotol, weeping yucca, red yucca, icicle plant (can't find a photo), Mexican feather grass, autumn glow muhly grass, and other pretty little flowers like daisies and frosty fire dianthus.
Here is the online web album for the photos. First three photos were taken in the backyard of the just-blooming crab apple tree.
Now "we" just need to come up with a new western designed mailbox to go on top of the whiskey barrel!
