Plant Combinations for Low Water Gardens

Summer heat means watering restrictions. It can be discouraging when you plant a garden that you can’t water it to keep it looking nice. Or, maybe you don’t even bother planting a garden because it’s too much work to keep up with watering it at all. Gardens can really make your home look great and enhance curb appeal. So, it might be worthwhile to plant that garden. There are plants that require lots of water and there are some that require very little. Maybe planting a low-water garden can make maintenance easy and keep your yard looking fresh a beautiful during the summer months.

Los Cabos, Mexico Trip

When it feels like January in July I know that it is time for a holiday. It felt more like summer in May than it does now. So, my family and I took a trip to Los Cabos Mexico to seek out some sun. With the market as busy as it is, time with my family is precious because work has been keeping me on my toes. We were able to get away and spend some quality time together. It was the first Mexican vacation for our little babe. We braved a plane ride and 7 days all-inclusive with a 6 month old. She did great. She loved all the attention she got from the people in the resort. We couldn’t get far without someone stopping us to tell us what a beautiful princess she was. I really enjoyed the time I was able to spend with my wife and daughter. Mexico is one of my favourite places to visit and it was a dream come true to share with my girls.
