Do you have friends with whom you share a common interest?
My friend and fellow blogger, Amy Andrychowicz of Get Busy Gardening loves gardening as much as I do. Amy and I have spent time together in Arizona and later in Florida.
I love the name of this plant, ‘Snow in Summer’ (Cerastium tomentosum). While it thrives in hot, dry conditions, it does not grow in warmer zones 8 – 11.
Enjoying the shade from the ground cover was a frog.
Amy had two beautiful clematis vines just beginning to bloom.
You may be surprised to find that growing vegetables is largely the same no matter where you live. The main difference is the gardening calendar. For example, I plant Swiss chard in October and enjoy eating it through March. In Amy’s garden, Swiss chard isn’t planted until late spring.
Different varieties of thyme were planted amount the pavers for a lovely effect.
Thyme can make a great ground cover in areas that receive little foot traffic.
I don’t often see red columbine. Amy’s reseeds readily, so she always has columbine coming up.
I encourage you to visit Amy’s blog, which is filled with a lot of helpful advice – even for those of us who live in the Southwest.
I love to travel.
For the past few years, I leave my husband and kids behind and embark on a road trip along with my mother where we explore a different region of the United States.

A couple of weeks ago, I was doing a Google search and entered ‘azplantlady’ to see what would come up.
I do this, not because I want to see links to what I have written. Rather, it is to see what other sites might have say about my blog. It is a good way to keep in touch with what others want to see and occasionally thank others who link to my blog.
It was during this most recent search that I found a link to a website that had my name on it. So, I clicked it and saw something that I wasn’t expecting…
I will be sure to check online now and then to make sure that no one else is taking what doesn’t belong to them.
