The ultimate xeriscaping

Hello, all,

We're stretching towards triple digits this week, so staying indoors is more appealing by the minute, although I did go out long enough to sweep the front and clean off the door mat earlier. Meanwhile, although native plants that don't need much water are good, sometimes the kind that needs none at all is even better. I foofed the bird cage this afternoon, adding a fern in a silver cup to the succulents:
It's sitting on one of those iron chairs to give it height.
Although you can't see the silver cup in the picture, it's there.

I added a silver bowl under one succulent to make it taller, too.

A cool spot of green for the library with no maintenance effort needed at all-- perfect!

Stay cool,

That turned out really cute, Michele. You've been busy!

I hope it cools down for you soon.
