Piece of dirt


This is what my wife and I accomplished with a 500 sq/m piece of barren ground.
Took us two trips to BA and a little imagination.
We LOVE it !!!

Asuncion always looks so barren and unorganized to me. Why aren't there any trees?

San Ignacio, Bahia Tortugas, Vizcaino, San Felipe, or other areas are deserts that do not look disorganized and barren. Some desert areas look alive. Its just something that always sticks out to me in the photos.

I'd take Asuncion in a heartbeat over any of those holes (well, San Ignacio isn't awful).

The patch looks great, Tim & Barb.

That's nice. It will be interesting to see your trees grow in the next few years.

We have a super-gardener taking care of the trees while we're gone.
We have full confidence that our plants will not only survive but thrive.

You should visit BA sometime for more than one sleep....there are trees in town....but the terrain is what it is....

Your comment is like saying, "where is the beach?" at San Borja.

And what do you mean by "disorganized"?

As you know, some folks traveling through the prairies say it is hundreds of miles of nothing and boring....and never bother to really look around and grok the complexity of it.

Each to their own.

Timo (and Barb)....you have started to create a lovely space that will gain character as time goes on....recreating and representing local flora landscaping....

Feeling homesick yet?;)




Don't believe everything you think....

Tim, just when I was starting to think you were an ok guy, you start throwing that four letter w-word around!

It was good to meet you and Barb, and I sure enjoyed the sea food c-cktail and chicken.




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

need some shade trees - plant some mesquite and palo verde. After they take, they would only need occasional supplemental water a couple times per year, and grow pretty fast

Shade trees are growing as we type
The rock was carved by a local who is quite the artist.
He is currently on an extended vacation (re-hab) and I hope he returns to BA this fall. I have some ideas for him.

Oh wow! I didn't know you were able to find a super gardener. When does he start taking over from me?
