My Three Little Muttscateers in Residence at The Coral Sands

Billie Holliday, Dusty Springfield and Gina LOLA Bridgetta all absolutely love a convertible ride in the desert...Sometimes if I leave the car door open in the white trash patio/car port I note around 3p.m. they have gotten in Dinah (my VW Convertible) and starting positively willing me to the wheel to take them on an afternoon spin to Koffi for a Machiato.

The transformation is mind blowing...8 tons of 3/4 white rock lining the perimeter of The Sands in place of grass...It looks so bright and cheery and snow...I purchased a number of Ocotillos and harvested palms that were small but already on the is a major improvement.

The Lower East Side of The Coral Sands...without the Juniper Trees...

Things are looking tidy on the lower east side of The Coral junipers and soon new plantings and white rock. Then there is a new sign on the way and you are going to just die when you see that!!!
You'd better make your reservations.
Try to remember...April, May and Early June are my favorite months at The Coral Sands.

The East Side Entrance After Juniper Fabric covering...

After removing some seven Giant Junipers we have added some new fabric covering to the Eastside entrance of The Sands...Now for the white rock and Palm Tree planting on either side of the gates...I am planting the babies the twin palms in the center of the property birthed so as not to purchase anything new.
Should look spectacular!!!

The Sands is Going White in an effort to go GREEN!

I am removing all grass at The Coral Sands and replacing it with white rock and desert plantings. This is a very labor intensive job but worthwhile, I believe.
I just painted the surrounding white block fence and trimmed up the piracantha. A spring spruce up!!!

The Twin Palms at The Coral Sands birthed two babies...

The central twin palms at The Coral Sands birthed two babies this year and I am harvesting them to be planted on the perimeter of the property where there used to be junipers...I took down 7 or 8 giant junipers and am making an effort to go Green. I am removing all grass and going to desert plantings...palm trees, palo verde trees...ocotillo...etc. It will be lovely and covered with 8 tons of white rock.
