August has arrived, which means that my kids have started school and peace has descended on my house 🙂


Soon fall will be here, which is a very busy time in the Southwest garden because it is the best time of year to add new plants to the garden.


But in the meantime, there are still tasks that need to be done this month in the garden.


Here is my latest Southwest To Do List from Houzz.com
