Garden of Delights

Feel that? You don’t? Okay, then go outside when it’s dark and try again.

Now do you feel it? Oh, my goodness. Isn’t it awesome? Yes, we think so, too. We are so much happier now. You are, too, huh?

If you don’t know what in the name of Sam Hill we’re talking about, go outside after dark. Feel that? Yes, that’s it. There’s actually a cool freaking breeze blowing about, which means that you can finally grow your rosemary, mint, and climbing aloe plants without worrying about scorching those puppies in the summer sun. Pick up these and more during the Fall Plant Sale at Desert Botanical Garden, which boasts a list of 10 single-spaced pages of arid-adapted plants available for purchase during the botany blowout.
