Update: Plants Under the Fountain

On April 6, 2008 I posted on the fountain area. This weekend I changed the plants. The previous plants did not like the heat and limited water (although there is irrigation to the bed I didn't want to put drippers in providing water). I planted candelilla a desert evergreen euphorb that is very tough and withstands harsh conditions. It is also pack rat resistant.

I then added small landscaping rocks and some petrified wood (gift from an optics professor's ranch near Winslow, AZ - north of the Petrified Forest N.P.)

Here are the new pictures:

New Grill

I bought the new stainless steel (everything inside and out) BBQ grill (Barbeques Galore Turbo STS), finished the tile around the opening and installed the grill.
