Desert natives

A walk through our desert yard...juniper trees and berries everywhere
Lizards, of course
I have my own ideas on what this actually is.....
Mark's metal lizard
Cactus

What's in your yard?

In my yard you can find weeds, some flowers, mostly in need of dead heading... Okay some cars, sofas, and other miscellaneous giant cow pies???

Love your desert garden! In my yard? Lots of lavender and a bunch of flowers I have no names for. My husband has the green thumb at our house and does all of the planting!

Great photos! We have the same things in our yard, with the exception of the petrified lava--the things that look like that in our yard are from our neighbors dog :/ LOL

Wonderful feasts for the eye! I think the metal lizard is absolutely awesome and, by far, the better way to go if ya want a lizard!! hehe

Love Mark's metal lizard! I can't believe you got a shot of a lizard, not just one but two. Here they scurry away as soon as you look at them!

a trampoline, a fig tree, lots of tomato plants, my garden sofa... nothing as exciting as those lizards!

Great pictures, I especially love the lizards :) Wonder if they think Mark's is the mommy lizard watching over all of them?

You think it might be dinosaur poop? heehee

Chucka Stone Designs said...

Oh & my yard is nothing but asphalt & parked cars :)

Lisa B. said...

Hey Harriet said...

I like your lizards!

What's in my yard? At the moment, lots of dog poo. I'll take photos & send them to you. If you're really lucky I'll get a doggy-do-poo action shot! :D

Nicole R.J. said...

Great shots! I love the lizards on the blocks... I don't think I've ever seen a lizard "in the wild".

A Cuban In London said...

Let's see, what's in my yard? My wife is a brilliant gardener, so there's a whole array of flowers and bush that make the garden look like a nice mini-forest, or would that be a bonsai forest?

Brilliant pics, by the way!

Greetings from London.

Sew Bettie said...

I wish I had a yard! Alas, city living (at least on a budget) doesn't allow for it...

Heather Buchanan said...

Haha, what's in my yard? Well, my balcony has a crummy old chair and a cardboard box/table to rest my wine glass upon.

Yours is much more beautiful! Mark's lizard is wonderful and your photos are, as always, stunning.

Great photos! Today I saw a roadrunner in mine...
