Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

-- Rocky Mountain News, June 1997
Neither desert nor rain forest, the high country of Santa Fe and Taos can be tamed, especially behind adobe walls. Transplanted Easterners recognized this fact. After the 1920s, they began to surround their homes with adobe walls for privacy and for the added enjoyment of growing flower beds, which flourish in interior patios.

Protected from the elements and kept warm by the heat-retaining adobe, flowers do especially well in Santa Fe and Taos when the soil is properly prepared and adequately watered, often by drip irrigation. Grateful for warm days and cool nights, gardeners successfully grow irises, roses, blue mist spirea, yarrow, lavender, coreopsis, poppies, snapdragons, daisies, columbine, day lillies, flax, and peonies.
