Gee... and I thought it was going to be a topic about CCR! This doesn't look like Kansas! Where are the sunflowers? And what's that Geico salesman doing in there?:-D

Cool pics, the artificial lake is beautiful but I'm all about that Collared Lizard!

very very inconspicuous cacti... with huge thorns that rend your feet apart....

I'm not sure how to extract the seed from the tumble weed, but I will keep my eye open. They usually start tumbling in the early fall.

I had no idea that those kinds of lizards were native to my homeland and found numerous of the little guys. I was on the lookout for rattle snakes that day, but they were elusive once again.

Scorpions, cactus, lizards, rattle snakes, not the Dorothy & Toto Kansas you always here about huh?

Ya no kidding... it seems like there is much more color there than when they filmed the Wizard of OZ :rolleyes:

My neighbor came from a part of California and said the tumbleweeds were bad there that they would blow into peoples cars, smack against houses etc. Heck I think that they would be neat little things (especially if you could make them smaller) then again I don't live with them 24/7 haha.

very nice view though :D

p.s. and please tell me that your avatar isn't a picture from your window either with all those nuke testing areas haha

I dont have tumbleweed seeds, but they are considered noxious and can be up to 5 feet wide and blow up in great numbers against everything. Seedlings abound, so next year if you remind me I could rip one from the garden and hook you up.

Haha that would be great. Although I wonder if it is one of those invasive plants that cannot be sent or distributed etc... research must be done...

Thanks,
-J.P.

EDIT: Quick search tells me that I'm better off not introducing them here.. *sigh* oh well I will have to admire them from afar. Thanks anyway!
