My friend Patty is a Master Desert Gardener and for the past two years she's been working to create a beautiful desert garden at her house. She only incorporates desert adaptive plants and those whose flowers attract birds and butterflies. This year it has really taken off and every time I visit I enjoy the uniqueness of her garden and all the "critters" it attracts. And of course, there's lots of bees and their relatives.
