The desert gardens surrounding our house in Joshua Tree were quirky, fun, interesting to explore. So different from the Kansas garden.
Lots of good chairs/swings/benches/hammocks for resting too.
Behind this big cactus pot you can see a trail in the distance, winding around behind a small mountain. Maybe a hill. It felt like a small mountain when I was trying to figure out how to get up it.
I'll just say it was pretty glorious being able to walk out the patio and scramble up a mountain on a hike. Even if I did sit down on my bum unintentionally one time. Or maybe twice.
