Desert Gardens: The View from Las Vegas!

Desert Gardens: The View from Las Vegas!

Spending a few days in the Vegas desert, I'm noticing how different the gardens here are compared to those in the Midwest. Without rich soil and regular rainfall, desert landscaping requires a major brain shift for a Chicagoan. But I'm loving the tough attitude of these sun-loving plants. Enjoy a few shots of some common bright sights (no, we're not on the Strip):
