PATIO REFRESH JULY 2021

 I recently did a refresh of my garden, adding way too many plants.  Hah! That's how a garden should be right?  A mixture of colors, textures and things that are loved by the garden care taker.  Things will no doubt evolve as I plan to add more.  Since I cannot literally live in a jungle then I will create my own unique version.

The plants I used in this garden are...

  • Strawberries and chives
  • Various varieties of Tomatoes
  • Aromas Cleveland Sage
  • Woolly Blue Curls
  • Baja Bush Snapdragon
  • Howard McMinn Manzanita
  • Various species of Dudleya
  • Skylark Ceanothus
  • Julia Phelps Ceanothus

LAKEWOOD BRICK FRONT YARD

 I love using brick as a hard surface.  But rarely do I ever get to.  In this case there was lots of existing brick that had to be worked with and new to be added to tie into the existing.  Coupled with California native plants, made for a beautiful front yard that will become the envy of the block.
