Helloooooo! My goodness, I suppose it’s been awhile since I posted anything! I didn’t mean to let so much time pass between posts…I put the blog on the back burner, then over time, it got moved to the back 40 burner, haha.

How are you? Doing well, I hope.

I’m fine, thanks for asking. Life in Phoenix is ok. Although we’re supposed to hit triple digits later this week and it’s only April. That has me concerned. But otherwise, things are good!

I’ve driven through the mountains east of Phoenix twice in the last six weeks, and each time I didn’t have my camera with me. Which was a shame, as the wildflowers looked gorgeous in the foothills. So yesterday I packed up my camera and took off in search of color in the desert.

I found lots! Look at all the beauties I found blooming, like these Desert Marigolds:

Such cuties!

I love, love, love the color of Globe Mallow:

Even the Prickly Pears were blooming:

I saw lots of cactus flowers that were hot pink but I couldn’t get close to them with my camera. (Translation – if they weren’t by the side of the road, they weren’t photographed, haha – I wasn’t going to go trekking through the dirt!)

I think this is Thistle, but I have no idea what kind. The bees and I love it though:

I don’t know what these purple pretties are but I’m a big fan:

On one of my drives, I saw some pink flowers that I think were Penstemons. I didn’t see any yesterday – I think they were at a higher elevation than I was willing to go on a Sunday drive.

Besides the wildflowers, the mountains were home to a Saguaro Cactus forest:

None of my photos do the mountains any justice – they are so beautiful!

Happy Earth Day everyone!

Hey, lots of pretty flowers!

Thanks to Carol over at May Dreams Gardens for suggesting we post photos of what’s blooming in and around our casas on the 15thish of each month. Be sure to check out everyone’s flower photos on her blog.

As I mentioned, I’ll post photos for you nonbloggers out there tomorrow. You still have time to email your flower pics to me. I hope to see you back here.

Time once again for photos of what’s blooming in and around the casa:

I love flowers!

Thanks to Carol over at May Dreams Gardens for encouraging us to post photos of what’s blooming around the 15th of each month.

If you have pretty flower photos to share, but not a blog, send me your pics (lizatheplantlady@gmail.com) and I’ll post them tomorrow. (If you do have a blog and want to send me photos, that’s ok, too!)

Hope to see you back here!

Hey look, a bunch of pretty flowers!

And now for fifty shades of pink, brought to you by the stars of the garden, the Cosmos flowers:

Big round of applause for the Cosmos! Good job, little cuties!

There are still Morning Glories blooming and Marigolds blooming around the casa, but I didn’t get any good shots of them.

Inside, Lady Evermore, an Aeschynanthus, bloomed all summer and is still kicking out a few blooms:

The Schlumbergeras, Christmas Cacti, are all gearing up to bloom, so I’m pretty sure I’ll have 50,000 photos of those for the November Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day.

My back door garden is still full of blooms, too:

Thanks to Carol over at May Dreams Gardens for suggesting we post photos of what’s blooming on the 15th of each month.

And thanks to you, for coming to my blog. I’m going to take a rare few days off from posting to spend with family, but I’ll be back on Friday with a new puzzler for you. Hope to see you back here!

Ok, this is just weird.

Check out this Globe Mallow plant that I spied on a walk recently:

It’s staked!

But why?

I’m so confused!

Are you confused, too?

I’ll be back manana, hope to see you here.

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in Arizona, after many years of living in and owning a plant care business in New Mexico.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
