|Smithsonian Magazine--sun through smoke|
Now, here in a desert climate, my garden is really just ornamental plants. Slowly over the past three years, the heat has fried many of those delightful plants. Fried, truly fried is the only way to describe the last year's summer.
Thus, those fried plants have been pulled, replaced with drought and heat resistant succulents. I do not know what they are, except for the jade plant. It will be astounding as years pass.
So, given all that info, I would appreciate your help in identifying these plants. I am pathetic, but I know some of you excellent plant people can help me.

|I "threw" this pot. The other piece is a water bottle|
I bought at an English antique fair.

|#7 This is a red clover, basically a shamrock. I keep|
in shade, well watered. It blooms now and then.
|#10 It is a jade plant, I think.|
So, there you have them. Please give this clueless blogger some help. Thanks.
I do have some roses and geraniums, on the side yard, and they are surviving. There is one healthy, a big old rose bush in the corner of the back stretch, protected from the wind and harsh-unforgiving-sun.
