my garden day~

in the courtyard the reds caught my eyes... 

passing the kitchen garden the pyracantha is so heavily laden every inch is saturated in berries 8' high and wide

 the fence line is a blaze in red hot pokers...

but good news is the ponds are instantly cooling

jackmanii is still blooming

and one lone white brugmansia

a couple of medians are reblooming

paperwhites are going strong

the lemon trees are heavy...

the acacia tree is budding up for February blooms

the loquat tree has 1000s of blooms with hundreds of bees harmonizing near and far

so nice to have a carpet of green for the girls

katie always howls when i ask her pose...

its taken me months, but today i finally removed the last of hundreds and hundreds of bearded iris from the backyard, they were always temporary, this jan we start construction of a pool to enjoy this endless view...

over thanksgiving week scott framed up the greenhouse, so excited to have a new place to call home soon!


  1. So nice to see your blooms, our garden is in the brown twig stage until next spring. :) And water in your ponds too! We're in a moderate drought stage, 6 inches behind where we normally are. Too funny that Katie howls, love seeing your girls. What fun for you to have another project and greenhouse in the making and a pool too! Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. ♥

  2. Wow! I am astounded that you still have flowers blooming. Your dogs are beautiful. I love border collies as they are so smart and beautiful.
