Meanwhile, Over at the Cul-de-sac

The HOA promised us new plants in our Bobcat Lair cul-de-sac, and yesterday they got to work on it. When I left in the morning, there was just spray paint all over the place, but when I got back from work, there was evidence of change.

Hey, I haven’t peed on these yet.

It’s sort of funny, though. Because we only have certain plants we can use, the new plants look just like most of the other plants in the neighborhood, so they blend right in. Only if you knew sotol has replaced yucca would you really notice.

Oh, you just wish that pink stuff was flowers. Nope. Deer would eat them.

I’m sure my neighbors will notice, of course. There’s enough yellow lantana over here to make it almost look sunny!

Miles and miles of yellow lantana. It will look nice all filled out.

Rocks have been added where cars always ran over the flower beds, though they didn’t finish it. And as of yesterday, the plants for the entrance bed were there, but not yet planted (only I would know that, because I helped select them).

These are the plants that are going to go in the corner bed at the entrance to Bobcat Run.

The hideous bed between our house and the next-door neighbor’s isn’t done, but the sad miniature nandina got pulled up. I will be interested to see what they do with that one. And you’ll be among the first to know.

For just a teeny bit of variety, there is some rosemary. I wouldn’t eat it, though. Dogs.

I think I’m all finished with posts about plants and ponds, so I’ll have to come up with something deeper for tomorrow. I do think I know what, since I had an interesting phone call last night.
