So, lionese, do you rake your rocks? I've been told that's what people in Phoenix do, instead of mowing the lawn.

Oh, and my other question--so do you not have bindweed in Phoenix?

I found a little monarch catepillar on my milkweed last night. It's about time! I've had that milkweed for 3 years now.

Our last shade tree was damaged and removed. So trying to come to terms with converting my partial shade garden to a full sun garden. AGAIN, lol. In the last 10 years, it's gone from full sun, to partial sun, to fairly deep shade, and now back to full sun.
