Beat the Heat

Fast forward to the upcoming summer months. (Gross, we know, but stick with us for a moment, because we’re trying to do you a favor.) Now, imagine sitting inside – because it’s impossible to go outside without dying – and staring out into your front and/or backyards. Nothing but a field of puke-colored dirt. Such a pick-me-up, right?

Before this sad, pathetic moment arrives, go green and primp your outdoor landscaping during Desert Botanical Garden’s Spring Plant Sale. A grip of purdy botany will be available for the picking at DBG, 1201 North Galvin Parkway, and it’s a perfect way to hue up your baby-vomit-colored lawn.
