Oasis today

Got as much work done by 11:00 AM as I plan to do today. Rain is in the forecast for this week. Hope it happens before I have to go back to Alpine. Everyone loves the blooming anisacanthus, including me.

I've been picking peaches off and on for a week as they ripen. Ours in Alpine only made a handful, what with May's hard freeze and June's devastating hail. The oasis escaped both catastrophes this time.

Here's a Gyp Phacelia (or Baby-curls). My sister identified it for me. I would never have been able to. This is not a very showy specimen, but it's the first I remember having at the oasis. Guess I need to keep a plant list too.
