AN ARIZONA RAINFOREST...........................................




Who says you can't have a rainforest in Arizona?

I am out to prove them wrong.  These are pics of my front court yard this summer.  Full of palms, trees, shrubs and flowers.....


The spider plants you see in the foreground....are mostly volunteers.  I started with one plant about three inches tall....and they just keep multiplying over the years.

The huge ferns in back I have had for over 20 years.

What always amazes me is how with ll5 degree summers and freezing winters these things just thrive and multiply.


Another peek through my palms....painted the chairs this summer...fun...fun colors.

This little sign is always on my porch.  It hangs about my fountain that runs 24/7....maybe it helps...who knows?  LOL LOL

I hope everyone is having fun with their summer gardens this year....you know what they say...."more is more".

hugs,

Jo

  11. How wonderful to have the climate to create such a beautiful tropical haven. I think you have a for sure micro climate happening there in your patio. If I lived in the desert year round I would create something like this as well in a small protected area.
