Where is the Garbage Can?



An urban garden that artfully puts the 

(1) Garbage can
 (2) Recycling bin
          (3) Air conditioning unit

in its place...out of sight!


Before
   
 (4) Native shrubs provide privacy screening.
            (5) Elegant limestone curbing eliminates soil erosion.

Spring? YES!



We've made it - SPRING!
 The frozen soil will give way to new life forms.

This daff was born
during the long winter months.
Hand-made.

ONE of those breakout moments



Beat up, 
bedraggled, 
and almost broken by winter...
a rhododendron shrub is starting to bud.

Yes. 
This is a sign.
Only nine days till the first day of Spring!

Desert


A palm tree, a chaise lounge and a cocktail with
a paper umbrella is just around the bend.

This holly shrub was a rescue. 
Happy to see it flourish in the winter garden today.
