COLORADO SPRINGS XERISCAPE GARDEN

Right on top the Mesa which is a high area that looks over to the Garden of the Gods and the Kissing Camels rock formation is the Xeriscape Garden.  Last weekend amidst rain falling in much of the city,  I found it clear in the garden.







Of course the emphasis is plants requiring little water but being close together to keep moist.




I did not take the time to write down the names of the plants but we all recognize the Lambs Ear.





I did note that this was called "Veronica" because some
 of you asked me about that the last time I posted photos from this garden here.


In spite of having 2 hummingbird feeders in my yard, I have had none this year but here at this garden near the mountains they buzzed about everywhere!


Cone flowers were prolific as well as Brown Eyed Susan's.










Hope you enjoyed!

What beautiful garden photos, Bernideen! How nice that were able to enjoy the area and share with us. I have never heard of Veronica, but the plant is a beauty!
Happy weekend!
