Flora in a time of drought.


Lantana, lavender, yarrow...butterfly paradise.


This lovely garden was put in by a water-conscious client of my brother. The client was telling us that the county offers a monetary rebate for those residents who take out their lawns and replace them with drought-resistant plants. I can't recall the dollar amount she received, but I should think it covered the costs of planting this abundance.

It must be noted that of my bro's many clients, this one actually tends her own garden. Nicely done.

  1. It looks lovely. Lantana, pretty as it is, is classified as a noxious weed in some states here. It has escaped to the countryside - and thrives.

    1. Interesting about Lantana in Oz. I wonder if that's the case in some states here? It sure is pretty. *sigh*

    1. Too true. Hers was one of the loveliest gardens I have seen in some time. The backyard boasted a bounty as well. -didn't take a photo though.

  3. Very nice. And it'll be great when we have another drought (probably sooner rather than later).
