Artichoke growing in a garden in Cambria.💜❤️💜❤️

The perfect setting at our Shinzen Japanese Gardens.💜❤️💜❤️

Some of my plants are still showing some blooms although they suffered through one of the hottest summers we’ve had here in the valley, and they also had to deal with our  polluted air filled with smoke from all the California wild fires.

I’m loving the pink and blue.

Some of my roses continue to bloom and continue to receive visitors.


Right now we are enjoying some beautiful autumn weather which will make it possible for me to get out there and do some cleaning in my rustic garden.

Love the red centers of my vinca flowers.❤️💜❤️💜

My dahlia at night time.💜❤️💜❤️


We are now having 100+ degree temperatures, so I think that means summer is here and this is where we will be spending our evenings, if it cools down enough.

Sitting enjoying our back yard is relaxing and gives us time to enjoy our surroundings.  The bird tweets and chirping of crickets is our music; of course hubby would like loud music from the radio, but I am partial to the sounds of nature.😃

We have a potted lemon grass plant to help combat the mosquitos.

Flowers are always a visual treat for us.


And of course we have our leaning tower of bird house.back yard view

Happy Father’s Day!❤️💜❤️💜

water fountain

Our water fountain was made into a planter. It’s one of my favorites spots in my garden. As we continue to pretty up my garden area I’ll share more photos of the different areas.

Have a great weekend.❤️💜❤️💜
