Latest photos from this past week of our Casa del Lagarto Azul in Loreto, Baja California Sur revealed that the stone walkways are complete and the garden installation has begun. While not complete, the few sculptural desert succulents are starting to beautify the area around our home. We are one step closer to the magical Baja casa we envisioned when we started this journey.

Side yard. We wanted an end-unit home. With the extra side windows now overlooking a sculptural succulent garden taking shape, we were glad we landed on this lot in the community!
Photo taken from what appears to be the front steps of our neighbor's casa. Gives you a better view of the scale of the home and the plants. Over time, the cactus will grow in nicely. I am hoping for a tree still. Will provide shade and add additional height. Would be nice contrast to the white walls of the casa as well.
