Looking east from our ranchette, south of Old Pearce AZ
I have started to add a few Agave to the garden for diversity, some of them are really nice. Love the coyote, I guess you have to keep a lookout for a few snakes too? LT
I love coyotes also, but they will eat small dogs like mine. So I had too shot at all four of them that have been close to my yard. The one in the pic gave me a dirty look and left, and I don't blame him/her. Sad, I wish they could hang out here.I have been here over 17 years, and have only seen two poisonous snakes out here, I have seen more in town belive it or not.I hope too read about and see your agave pics in the future.
I posted my new agave's a week or so ago, one of the Agave pumila is a lovely blueish colour. I guess one has to draw a line somewhere with critters - for me a snake coming on the deck, nearly into the house is that line and one of us has to go! LOL!
Great variety, and I hope you have better luck this time around. This last several years of the "Pacific Decadal Oscillation" weather pattern bringing persistent, colder than usual winters, early falls and later springs / summers is a tough thing; hoping it ends soon! Hitting Abq, too. Most of what you show, except ocotillos and Agave protoamericana, have done well in even Denver for decades with no protection.
Your read on the Dever Garden gives me lots of encouragement about my new agave! The A. protoamericana is a one that came from many outside tries in my Idaho yard, even covered it dies to the ground, but has always came back from the roots. I had it in a pot and was planning on taking it to AZ but I did not make it down there this year so I thought I would try here one more time.lol
Your garden is lovely! I enjoyed seeing it. Such a sense of wide spaces. Beauty in a harsh climate is all the more beautiful.
What a nice comment, thanks looking.
