Thanks, Lene. I'd love to return, but my career and family life conspire to make that unlikely for the forseeable future. Maybe in a few years we can take a few weeks and visit old friends, but that would require a shift in finances. $15K-20 to get four of us there and rent a 4x4 isn't in the budget forecast!


Great post, as always, Tim. Thanks for linking from the WL mini-tree discussion. It's fun to see your personal pictures of these plants. What a harsh looking environment. Do you have any plans to return?


Another Festival visitor here....thank you for a fascinating and informative post! Having moved from Central NY to the High Desert region of Central Oregon (all junipers and sagebrush), I have to admit that deserts do have their own sort of stark beauty.


I'm pleased you enjoyed it, Dave. Leafy and Cypress Spurge are indeed headaches, and can poison livestock as well as overwhelm habitats.


Here via the Festival of the Trees. Thanks for a very informative post. Your description of the venomous Euphorbia made me think of another Euphorbia, leafy spurge, which is such a troublesome invader in many parts of the U.S.
