Not too far out back, is a very arid area of our yard that has precious little tree cover. As a result, the area is very different from the rest of our property.
This is the section that attracts the Gopher Tortoise.
We have several active holes.
The size of the hole reflects the size of the tortoise-it is oval shaped like them, too!
Bill plants all kinds of things around their homes to make the area more attractive since he doesn't mow over these spots!
This is the first Rain Lily of the season!
Another plant that is happy out in the 'desert' is a multitude of cactus!
The fruit is growing on this one-
And a new bloom is getting ready to open!
There are Spanish Sword and sago palms,
And this unknown scrub bush is blooming.
