House at 236 and Guinea

This house has a desert landscaping scheme that looks totally out of place. How do they keep it that way? I didn't think cactus plants would survive our climate. Are the plants fake? Either way, it looks like shit.

My next door neighbor has a cactus, and it grows just fine year-round. It is indoors on his window sill.

Does your neighbor not heat his/her home in the winter?

Yeah, I look at that guy's stuff while waiting for the light. The cacti look real to me and I think it looks great.

I too have wondered how they survive the winter. Special species maybe? I do know that it can get damned cold in the desert at night.

I guess deserts can get cold at night. Or so I hear. Still, did not know a cactus could survive in NOVA climate.

Desserts do not get cold at night, that is why they are called desserts.

Desserts can be cold as shit at night....

There are tundra desserts where it really never gets "Hot". The term refers to the amount of water available, not temp.

Those plants are designed to hold water inside.

They grow cotton next to them in the summer at that house....

I've always found that desserts can be cold, i.e., ice cream, popsicles or hot, i.e., apple pie, fudge brownies.

The yard is unique and well kept. Looks good. I've seen a lady out there during the day working in the yard. Think she was asian.

And for fuck's sake, it's spelled DESERT.
A desert has Sand.
Dessert is Strawberry Shortcake. Two S's

Congrats; you've now passed fourth grade.

LOL Yeah I noticed that too! There's also some kind of fruit trees, The fruit look like oranges although I don't think that's what they are. What's odd is I saw those on the trees last week!
