Yellow Euryops Daisy, Hot Pink Geranium, Blue Lobelia, Fern Leaf Lavender and Gazania
First, I would like to share with you some beautiful winter flower container arrangements which were designed and planted by my friend, Maggie Thomas. She is a landscape designer and her specialty is designing container plantings. As you can see, she is extremely talented.
Hot Pink Geranium, Bacoba ‘Cabana’, Blue Lobelia, Fern Leaf Lavender and Blue Viola
In the area we live, zone 8b, we are fortunate to be able to grow flowering plants in containers year-round. In late spring, these plants will be pulled out and replaced with summer flowering plants that can handle our hot summers.

Hot Pink Geranium
Fern-Leaf Lavender (Lavandula multifida)
Although these containers are planted with plants that do well in our desert climate in the winter, those of you who live in more temperate climates can try these out in the summer months.

Now, for the name change….
I have been thinking about changing the name of my blog for some time. The current title, “Plant Tips and Guidelines for a Desert Garden” sounds a bit like a textbook and although I strive to include helpful information in each post, I also like to ramble on a bit about all sorts of things.
So, I am changing the name of my blog to…
“RAMBLINGS FROM A DESERT GARDEN”
I hope you like it as it more accurately describes what my blog is all about.
(My feed and links should not be affected because my url address is www.azplantlady.com which is not being changed.)
*Meanwhile, I am waiting
patiently for my roses to arrive in the mail this week so I can start planting.
