There are some wonderful benefits attached to virtual self-employment, especially if your home office has a desk with a window that has a view of a garden and the Tucson foothills. My own garden is evolving in interesting fashion. The photo above shows a lush garden half and a birdbath.
The other half of the garden was rather barren. A recent guest (unnamed Tucson-based coachy REALTOR-type person who blogs and Twitters) recently delivered a bucket of cactus cuttings for us to plant. The night-blooming serius blooms ONCE a year ... late in the evening, and shares a wonderful, short-lived perfume.
I can hardly wait! In the meantime, I have the most phallic looking garden in the neighborhood! (See below.)
