And here we are are at the last garden of the tour.  The eclectic mix in this garden made for a fun way to end the day.  OPEN DAYS described it this way:

Blue Lotus Gardens offers landscape concepts and unique plant material. The garden offers a rare approach to drought tolerant gardening which includes a rain water catchment system. The front garden is consumed with large five-foot specimen agaves and various sizes of cactus and yuccas. The garden emanates a great west Texas feel. The front landscape also includes a disappearing fountain that attracts many Texas native wild birds. As you approach the back garden the atmosphere becomes eclectic with vintage and modern touches. Nestled within is a quaint iron bed and a long modern hedge of the Holy Fire lotus flowers. The garden also includes honey bee hives and stucco turtle sanctuary.

And so this concludes the photographs for the 2011 OPEN DAYS in Dallas.  I hope I was able to capture some of the magnificence. 

I can't wait for the Fort Worth OPEN DAYS coming in October!

I love cactus gardens, as well as any kind of succulents, and wish I had more in my own garden. Thanks for sharing these great pics!

It was a great tour. Ideas to tako take from each garden. Your photos are great. It is fun to see the gardens through your eyes and see things I may have overlooked. Maybe I will see you in Fort Worth.

I love the iron bed frame garden. Reminds me of your lounge chair.
