Thanks!!
I bought the pavers at Home Depot, they have some great designs and different sizes to create a pattern. They are also a lot less expansive than most. Are you going to plant some Palm Trees as well? Good luck with your landscaping.

Home Depot?? I've looked at several here, and didn't see any like you had....guess I just missed them. Thanks again.....I'll check them out the next time I go back!

No. No palm trees for me. I don't really like them, and the ones here have all the dead brown growth on them that nobody bothers to trim off/clean up......with new green growth on top. It just looks really, really strange to me.

I'd like a small tree, but I haven't decided what to put in, if anything!

I love Palm Trees, and they are very low maintenance which is what I really like. They can look good in so many places and are very durable.

Great pictures from everyone so far.

I know whatcha mean. Your "little pot of flowers" MADE me feel pretty darn humble. Beautiful pictures and a great job with your garden! All I have right now is a fair-sized backyard comprising mostly dirt and gravel.

And given my green thumb skills (Oy vey), don't know if that's going to change anytime soon.

Thank you, Julia. I just posted a bunch of photos of other people's flowers (and ours, too) on YouTube--it's called
My Clovis: Flowers in May. I can't believe the beautiful roses here. Back in New Hampshire I would still be waiting for the buds to open.

I can't believe them either! Heck, I guess I have to go visit Clovis now. Or at least keep Clovis in mind for next Many.

I recently moved about 10 miles north of Santa Fe to a little village, and here there is talk of starting a community garden and doing organic gardening classes. Man, would I love that as right now I have no idea of where to begin.

It's been a while so I thought I'd see if anyone had any updated pictures, or perhaps some of you that didn't post photos in this thread last year have some nice photos of your yards.

I "paved" my patio with ordinary red building bricks that I bought at Home Depot several years ago. Lowes at that time didn't carry them. Both places carried the red-colored cinder block pavers in the garden depts. But the building bricks and plain gray cinder brick pavers were cheaper in the building supplies dept where they sell regular cinder bricks and such.

Sadly, the other day when I tried to buy more of the red building bricks, they no longer carry them (at Home Depot) and they don't even have the ordinary cinder brick pavers - the ones that are about an inch and a half thick. They did have the 4-inch thick solid cinder blocks ones of the same rectangular size, but makes no sense to use those for paving, IMO.

And no, Lowes didn't have them either in building supplies! Both places had the odd-sized colored pavers in the garden dept. - and they weren't all that cheap.
