The desolate harsh atmosphere of the desert makes it challenging for animals, plants and people to survive. Unless the species is native to the environment, it doesn’t last long and struggles through its life.

The sage thrives here. This bush always needs cutting back but gets loaded with lavender blooms about three times a year.
The water issue seems to be resolved. Do I dare say that aloud? I’ve done a lot of cleaning up, washing and generally wearing myself out. Along with that, I’ve changed TV carriers and had many appointments for the “welcome to Medicare” program all new people are entitled to once they become eligible. This has been quite interesting and I’ll post more about that next time.
We did have an unexpected rainstorm, which ventured this way from
yesterday. It was actually in the
seventies in July! What a nice
break. My lawn has decided to sprout a
bit of new grass in random spots. I
don’t know if it will ever recover completely.
It looks burned to a crisp despite all the watering we’ve done, along
with putting on the treatment the local nursery advised.
