Your pictures of the monarch has inspired me. I have a large vegetable garden but starting to find it too much to deal with. I am going to harvest my milkweed soon and plan the new butterfly garden over winter. I was worried about the 4 cats but have noticed the butterflies are not that interesting to them. I believe they are too fast and the not that tasty! Now the grasshoppers are another story. Thanks again for the inspiration.

About those unexpected combinations: one year I had a vivid pink bee balm blooming at the same time as a butter yellow daylily. It was gorgeous but they were a little too far apart. I did some rearranging, but have those two indulged me ever again? Not yet, but I haven't given up!

Love the energy efficiency but would love to see a "traditional" home built to such high standards for those of us not keen on the modern style. Bravo to these homeowners though for doing what I dream of!

Love this color combo! Used in our Master Bedroom in 1900s home.

None of those bathrooms would encourage me to linger--
well, maybe the one with the black framed shower...
but they are just so staged...how could anyone see themselves actually using one???

Our sons wedding was a small vintage style wedding at our home. We used vintage wedding pictures of grandparents and great grandparents, grandmothers pedestal cake plate, etc. I felt like our loved ones of past were a part of the celebration.

As someone who works in the wedding industry as a floral designer, this is easily one of the sweetest and most wonderful weddings I've seen lately. Normally you see weddings like this put together for photo shoots only, what a magical moment in time they created for themselves!

Seeing this article brings back such wonderful memories of our eight years in Tucson. To our delight, both homes we lived in, one on the east side, the other on the west, had saguaro. The first was armless, but the second had six to eight arms and was 25 feet tall! One arm curved to the ground, so we were able to see the blooms, fruit, and seeds up close. To me the crowning blooms look like a bridal bouquet. One year, a huge arm broke off, and since there was no way to remove it, so we were able to watch it decompose (rather quickly, I was surprised to see) and see the ribs.

Our first winter we were surprised to,wake up to a white Christmas! Each cactus arm had a diminutive snowcap, just like the majestic Catalina mountains to our north. How I miss those special times.

Great article! Just moved to Arizona, and it's nice to discover a whole new array of plants, and familiarize myself with the vegetation.
