Haiku my heart~ morning walk

 Xeriscape gardens
efficient irrigation
a desert lifestyle
I usually go on my walks in the morning
before the sun gets too high and hot.
The plant life here offers little shade.

  1. Lovely trees...Indeed, your haiku gives a clear picture of the place. Beautiful.:)

  2. I have never seen these trees (are they palms?) before! They remind me of Cousin It from the Adam's Family, only a Mr. & Mrs. It! What a beautiful morning greeted you Gemma before the heat!

  3. We all must adapt in this life and those trees do it 'beautifully'...x

  4. What bushy tailed trees. They make me think of a cross between a palm and a yucca. They are really quite beautiful. I wonder if they have beem pruned, groomed, and shaped.

    1. I don't think so. They are sharp and sticky and grow like this.

  5. Gorgeous photo and delightful haiku ~

    Happy Weekend to you,
    artmusedog and carol

  6. LOL I thought of Cousin It just like Lea did. These trees look all shaggy. Are they trees? Or some kind of cactus? Would love to grow one here. email me the name, wouldja pleeeze? xo

  7. dearest gemma,
