This was our Vegas yard when I first moved in with Bill. I tried growing various flowers, grass, trees and shrubs but everything but the mondell pine died within the first year. I have a few roses and some other small paltry pathetic shrubs but otherwise it's just become a fancy place for Honey to go do her doodles. Looking out the window at it breaks my heart because I have tried so many times to get stuff to grow and it always dies. It makes me feel defeated to look at my Vegas yard when I can drive to Utah and be considered a natural green thumb and expert on so many things. If they only knew.
