Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"
Overgrown gardens have always appealed to me. It feels like you might discover a secret.Just catching up on your posts since I got back from Spain. Love memo and the mouse eating the prickly pear.

I'd think in Phoenix as here, the more overgrown the more shade and thus more cool and more cool in the summer is a blessing.But there's always the danger that the plants "overgrow" to the point they make things disappear. We had stuff growing on a gate at our old house that I couldn't kill. I'd cut it down every year and by the summer it was a jungle!
That's a little like mine Sharon, I never did get in there and 'tame' it last weekend. My sister in law who is a poet calls it a 'romantic' garden, sounds better than overgrown :)
It is overgrown, but very tastefully so!
I like an overgrown garden. Looks like a nice spot.
It looks like a very restful place.
A nice cool place for hot summer days.
The garden is beautiful and the residents probably make good use of it.
It makes it nicely secluded and quiet-looking, Sharon!
Oh gosh, that's so pretty and serene and you've got roses already!!! Or are they bougainvillea?
I keep thinking of The Secret Garden - it's like a world unto itself. Shaded, serene and welcoming...so inviting!
Love the moose.
It is a nice setting.
If this is the place I think it is, it has been there for well over 40 years and has always been a lush oasis.
