Spring is definitely here and the garden and yard are reflecting that renewing joy.
This house came with lawns in the front and back yard, but with the water drought, we’re looking at hopefully replacing all of that despite likely moving in a few months (for the renters-to-be to enjoy, to enjoy in the interim until then, and to support the water issues) with perhaps some beautiful rock and succulent garden and/or labyrinth – my preference anyway, as lawns just feel too artificial and cookie-cutter to me.
Here are photos sharing some of Nature’s radiant abundance I’m enjoying here at home.
Every season has its beauty and Spring most surely radiates abundantly.
Bougainvillea abundance illuminated by the Sun’s rays in our backyard. This is a huge plant that has grown up and over into the tangerine tree, which are the green leaves you see peeking out.
My sweet Woolly Lamb’s Ear plant that started out as one little shoot I transported across the ocean on boat from Catalina Island. It’s now a flourishing and abundantly beautiful and lush plant.
Sweet Peach Blossoms of our Peach Tree. There are 10 times as many blossoms this year.
I can’t remember the name of this plant, but it’s just so beautiful and dramatic in its crimson and deep burgundy leaves that look like an exotic flower.
One of my Orchid plants I saved. My parents gifted this plant and it had nearly died last year, but has been resurrected. I held out hope and placed it outside on the deck and it has now flourished and just produced these beautiful new flowers, with more to come.
This is a Good Luck Cactus that made the journey from Lake Tahoe. It also was nearly, if not dead and resurrected into a very healthy, strong and beautiful Cactus. Yay luck!
Another look at the Blossoms of the Peach Tree. Can’t wait for the Peaches! In the meantime these are just so enchanting.
Bougainvillea in the front yard that are happily growing up the lattice of the garage. It took some effort and hope, but they are now flourishing. Bougainvillea now cradling front and back yard. Those Cattails you see are actually solar-generated lights that look like plants and at night the Cattails light up for a natural, more magickal looking light.
