For years I’ve been wanting to do something with our backyard. I have this fantasy where one of those yard makeover shows comes to my house and offers to redo my backyard. I would have water wise landscaping that uses native plants that would not require excessive watering. Of course I would want a beautiful tree, like a Mesquite tree that provides a nice amount of shade and a place for birds to nest. Then I would like a water fountain where birds could come and drink and I could enjoy the sounds and sights of bubbling water. Outdoor globe string lights would be hanging around a beautiful pergola. It would make for nice evenings. A small little adobe fire pit would be just the thing for those cool winter evenings. Who knows, it might just happen for me.
