Garden Spring Beauty


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

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.

woolly lamb's ear

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.

peach blossoms2

Sweet Peach Blossoms of our Peach Tree. There are 10 times as many blossoms this year.

dramatic plant

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.

orchids

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.

good luck cactus

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!

peach blossoms

Another look at the Blossoms of the Peach Tree. Can’t wait for the Peaches! In the meantime these are just so enchanting.

bougainvillea2

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.

  1. Lovely, lovely, lovely! And with any luck, the peach tree here will be blooming when you get here. I’ve got lambs ears seeded with hopes of putting them as a backyard ground cover in a shady, black walnut area. All your blossoms and blooms are beautiful! Thank you for sharing … and a xeriscaped yard sounds great!

    • awesome!! will be fun to explore your garden and have fun out there with it and other stuff ๐Ÿ˜‰ i love the lamb’s ears…they’re like sweet bunny ears to me โค yes, we're excited about the new landscaping and we're seriously looking at putting a labyrinth…will keep you posted.

      • A labyrinth would be so great! Just learned that there is a labyrinth down the street from us at Goshen College. I had NO idea. We will have to find it while you’re visiting. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • perfect!!! fun, fun!! yes, we’ve been enjoying labyrinths a bunch. we found an awesome one that’s our fav so far, at a local church. i had no idea churches had labyrinths, but it’s in fact like the third we’ve found. so much to explore and find while there!!

      • Oh, yes, churches have labyrinths, especially in Europe. In Madison, we had one in walking distance, through the woods, which was a small one. Then our friend, Melanie had a huge labyrinth with loads of crystals and faeries about 45 minutes away. That was a very special place! There’s supposedly another one at a retreat about a half hour from here. I’ll try to get details before you arrive. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Anyway, it will be cool to see which labyrinth design you choose if you do one. xoxo

      • melanie’s does sound special!! so many things to explore when there.

        the one we do here would be an interesting shaped one as the yard is an elongated rectangular, so we’ll see what develops.

        xoox!!

  2. Really pretty, Tania. You have a green thumb. That doesn’t surprise me – all your beautiful energy.

    • aw so sweet. thank you for sharing that. i’m not sure that i have a green thumb, as i really don’t know anything about gardening and look for low maintenance plants, but i might have a little faery luck and magick on my side, which i’m grateful for, plus A LOT of love for our beautiful earth and all things natural ๐Ÿ˜‰
