Desde Mi Ventana

This is a view of my yard in Scottsdale, Arizona. The colorful pool and patio invite you to enjoy the outdoors, and
the ambiance is accented with several native plants. The Saguaro cactus defines the Sonoran Desert and its blossoms are the state flower. The Palo Verde is the state tree.

A short drive away is the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, a 44,000 acre protected desert and mountain habitat. Naturalists study the desert, and hikers walk its historic trails. The preserve abuts an extensive county park. By keeping large areas safe from human development, we hope to find a balance between preserving their natural beauty and the demands of population growth.
