Come take a hike with me! The flowers are blooming it still is nice weather, not to hot or to cold. But watch your step you don’t want to step on a flower!

They are in the process of metaphoring (is that a word) right now. No pretty butterflies from them just moths...

Saw horses



And interesting rock formations.

Even though th...

Plants that you don’t have to fuss over, change out the existing soil , water constantly, protect from the wind, fertilize , and generally make an entirely new environment for the plant. If this sounds appealing to you then GO NATIVE!

We have always had a great deal of natives ...

If you live in California or just visited you might have driven on the 15 freeway on the way to Las Vegas or points beyond. Lots and lots of barren hills and valleys. You may not have known at the time that the land on the east side of the 15 freeway is the boundary of the Mojave National Preserve. Didn’t look too interesting, huh!

Let me take you on a tour of part of the Preserve and maybe you will change your mind ☺.

In the town of B...
