Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

LOTS of color at our local nursery center

We have a nice nursery center here in town, as well as the two box stores.  They never seem to have what I want and their plants don't look healthy.  So, I enjoy visiting our local nursery every now and then.  It is nestled up into one of the canyons here in town and they have been there for over 40 years.  The staff allows me to wander around with my camera and they are all friendly.

I went up there Sunday to buy some seeds (cosmos) for the back yard, but they only had 2 packages, so I did end up driving over to ...(cough, cough) Lowe's.  What a difference in the quality of the plants and their prices, too!  OUCH!  The local nursery is so expensive I cannot afford to buy anything bigger than a small pot there, but I do enjoy looking at all of their beautiful specimens.

See if you agree...

The pictures of the roses made me automatically "smell" my mother's rose garden in California from memory. I like those orange flowers second from the bottom. They're interesting.
