Yucca & Mesquite
Most of the native trees or brush around my sons home is mesquite trees seen in the first 2 photos and the yuccas shown in the next 2 photos. Both are very drought resistant but the drought that is going on now is about to do in a lot of the native plant live in the southern New Mexico area.
Retirement has finally come and for the first few years I lived as a "desert rat" on a small chunk of desert land in Rio Rancho, NM. Recently my husband and I moved to Carrollton, KY so we would be near my son. It has been quite an experience. We live on an acre of land that is mostly grass but have lots of forest and farm land around us. My pets include 4 cats, 1 dog, 2 horses, and 2 ponies. All pets were adopted from shelters. I like to raise flowers, and houseplants, and I try to garden. I sometimes attempt to write fiction and nonfiction stories. I love to take photos and share them. I enjoy watching the sun rise in the morning and the moon rise in the evening, and love watching nature. I am an avid reader of fiction books with westerns and mysteries being my favorites.
