This is my last post about my visit to “The Farm at South Mountain”, which is a rural oasis just minutes from downtown Phoenix.
The farm has much to offer it’s visitors….organic vegetable & flower gardens, award-winning restaurants, large picnic areas underneath a pecan tree grove, artist studio and gift shop plus much more.
Table of herbs available for sale behind white flowering Geraniums.
Today, I would like to show you some of the herbs and succulent plants that I found.
The bright blue flowers of Rosemary.
My brother-in-law and sister (residents of “The Refuge”) checking out the herbs and vegetables offered for sale.
This collection of hats has nothing to do with herbs or succulents, but I just loved how they were hanging on the wall. Imagine how much use the tattered hat has seen :^)
A table filled with Ponytail Palm, Sanseveria, Jade and many other succulents, available for $5 each.
Indian Fig Prickly Pear (Opuntia ficus-indica)
Although from all appearances, this farm could be located anywhere, a Indian Fig Prickly Pear cactus (above) shows the farm’s desert roots.
It was a wonderful day and I cannot wait to visit again. Below are a few more views of the farm before we leave….
Stop and sit for awhile and listen to the radio.
An African Sumac (Rhus lancea) tree shades the patio of the cafe.
Thank you for sharing my visit to the farm and for all of your friendly comments.
