For our ongoing but almost finished backyard project, I envision having a few of these delights. In Mozambique, we were surrounded by lushness, plenty of fruit trees (fig, papaya, lemon, peach, coconut, guava, mango), and many gorgeous blooming bushes. The desert is a bit more challenging. I have slowly adjusted, albeit kicking and screaming as my mind's eye wouldn't let go of the greenery of the east coast. Yet, the desert holds beauty, that the mind's eye can see only if it is flexible.
