Fortunately for this shoot, John just did a bunch of yard work. But that only makes the yard neat, not interesting. Still, let's take a look anyway:
The bougainvillea that was snowed on in January, looked completely dead in March and April and started to revive in May and June, has one flower as July begins.
Not so this not so green evergreen. It's been failing for years.
I seldom miss a chance to photograph Tuffy in the back yard, easily its most photogenic feature when she's there.
John recently lined up all our back yard furniture and other stuff on its way out of our lives, the better to get the rest of the yard under control.
You may have noticed that the grass and trees are dry, dry, dry, despite John's watering. But July is here, and the monsoon will start soon. When that happens, the desert will be greener.
