That was my side yard with my old neighbor’s house in the background. I love everything about it, to include the Fall colors. Breakdown of plants from left to right:
That. Is. Gorgeous.

If I was betting, and if this sumac is a tree, I’d go with African sumac. Tough as nails, and super drought hardy. It’s a bit messy and has fallen out of favor in the last couple of decades with desert metro landscapes, but it’s still a tree that I can appreciate for many reasons.
Winner winner chicken dinner.

Fun way to spot a house that has kids. If their African sumac has no bark on areas that can be climbed.

Basic Water Company, which at one point was the sole provider of water to Henderson and Las Vegas in the mid-20th century, filed for bankruptcy protection on Saturday, a move the comes as the company is no longer able to pump water from Lake Mead.

When Lake Mead dropped below 1,043 feet in early July, Basic Water Company’s intake pipe that was installed in the 1940s could no longer draw water from the lake, company President and Chief Financial Officer Stephanne Zimmerman wrote in a 27-page filing in the bankruptcy case.
