My Garden, For Cee: FOTD Jan 14, 2022

Cee remarked on loving my garden, so here is a view of some of it for her. If you click on the photos, they enlarge, and some have captions.

Succulent Wall: FOTD Mar 12, 2021

Click on photos to enlarge.

The arrangement below is my new addition to this wall, which used to have a very large jade plant where the new arrangement is. I moved it because it was obscuring some of the plants above it. It is now moved to the side but very nearby.

FOTD Feb 22, 2021: State of the Lot

Here are photos of the current state of the little park I am building in the lot below my house. I just purchased the carved stone snake head and will form the body out of the small bushes that are currently laid out behind it. As the bushes grow, the body will flesh out more to scale. I’ll have a stone tail sculpted later after my bank account recovers from past projects. I bought one more sculpture as well, but you just see the uncarved back of it in the photo.  The four Dr. Seuss trees will be planted elsewhere in the lot, not in the positions where they currently are. Bit by bit, the neighborhood weed forest and dumping ground is turning into a thing of beauty. Stonework by Jose. Planting by Pasiano.  Financing and art direction by Judy.

Mules Tail and Hibiscus: FOTD Feb 10, 2021

Had to show a closer-up view of the mule tail plant that you perhaps saw from afar in a view of the garden a few days ago. I love this fragile plant and I’m curious to see how long it grows in this setting in which it seems to thrive.

Terrace Tour, FOTD, Nov 10, 2020

The light looked good yesterday, so I picked up my camera and took a little tour around the backyard terrace. If you want to come along, some of the photos are below. Others will crop up on Flower of the Day  later on in the week. In the third photo, that’s Colima Volcano that you see in the distance.

Click on first photo and then the arrows to take the tour.
