I’ve been spending my time outdoors as often as possible before the summer heat arrives. Spring in the Mojave Desert is bursting with color. Here in Las Vegas and surrounding areas it’s important that we plant our yards with native, drought tolerant plants to do our part and conserve water. Just because our landscapes should be drought tolerant doesn’t mean we can’t have beautiful, colorful, and fragrant yards. I wanted to share the photos I snapped at the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension garden tour.
