palm trees and metal horses

What a day! Full of color ~ helped illuminate the ideas for a back yard that could serve as a creative safe haven! Visited a landscape business in Bakersfield ~ The Majestic Palm. It sits of five acres with a large yet secluded Koi pond, buildings full of colorful wall hangings, ceramic figures garden and every variety of vivid clay pots, hundreds of palms...didn't even know that there were so many varieties. They do interesting work with wrought iron right on the premises as well ~ benches, gates, tables ~ all sorts interesting pieces. Viewing all this made me realize that one could, with time and effort, create an oasis in this arid place. Sactuary in the desert city just might be possible,
