Does this look like a flower bed to you? It looks like a ton of work to me!
We take the good with the bad - the Satsuma tree is loaded with fruit this year, so it must thrive on neglect and stingy water.
Mom's "dry creek bed" is more of a Sumac forest. It will be beautiful when the leaves turn red if we don't get to it with the chainsaw before then.
The house in the background is ours. The cotton fields are in bloom, cotton bolls just beginning to form. It will look like snow in a few weeks.
