There is no possible way for photographs to begin to convey the charm of this garden along the south borderline between Mexico and the U.S. I was greatly joyed at having three people actually come visit the garden last Saturday. One sells potted plants at our local Farmers’ Market — she took home hundreds of starts for plants from the garden and no sign of the tiniest dent was made in this budding and blooming oasis among the dusty dirt of our pre-monsoon high desert landscape.
The Mermaid Rose – scent from heaven at dawn and dusk. There’s my adobe chicken coop in the background – and the rusty double border fences.
Darlow’s Enigma – wild rose, blooms spring to freeze
The John Cabot rose with pink salvia and Sundancer Daisies

Such lovely pink!
Oh, well – lovely new blooms even though I have forgotten the name of this hardy desert perennial!
They all loved our winter rains!
The Nearly Wild rose coming into bloom. A modest grower, very easy to grow and maintain!
My friend calls my garden “the Beetlejuice garden.”
Perennial petunias and wonderful sage that blooms only once a season – and that season is now!
Lovely deep red salvia.
There are the two rust brown tall Mexican border fences in the back of the picture.
So lovely – and will be lovier yet come mid-July when our summer rains arrive!
The very hardy John Cabot rose.
This rose is the tenderest of the bunch – but when it blooms I NOTICE!
