Outdoor aside: Tropical ground cover

One of the most tiresome landscape issues in the tropics is what very few landscape plant options one has in drought areas. It is always good, then, to see a bit of creativity exercised toward a clean, unexpected, but wholly practical treatment. I walked past this border along side a driveway on the beach road yesterday and I thought it was a great tropical-shade idea, river stones and dwarf grass over tiny pebbles and ground shell. Pretty.

And a reminder: Do not forget to enter the Garden & Gun giveaway at Blushing Hostess Entertains or the Old Bay giveaway at Blushing Hostess Cooks. Both are worth a second to leave your name.

Ohhh!!! Super pretty and elegant. If I lived in a dry climate - I would be doing this!
