December in a Tucson Garden

Saguaro stands over the place I call my desert garden 
(I live on stolen land, it really isn't mine at all)
A Dragonfly landed on my arm to eat the fly it caught.
Baby Parry's Agave growing in the rocks.  This land is full of beautiful rocks.  Every time I dig I look forward to seeing the rocks uncovered and carefully replaced on the soil when I am finished.
Baby Fire Barrel with extra long thorns.

Pineleaf Milkweed in the late morning light and by it's side is a small Princess Agave with a flower stalk.
Pipevine with fresh new growth after the Pipevine Swallowtail caterpillars ate all the old leaves in October (eating shown below)
