Purple Hibiscus

While I have both yellow and orange hibiscus here in the garden, these purple ones always catch my eye. Although the flowers are smaller the radiant purple color is a treat.

Variegation can make any plant, even those that don’t flower, seem more dramatic and dress up your garden.

WBC Mason Bee House [Product]

I came across this lovely bee house on Instagram and followed the links all the way over to the main website, which has this house and many more. I have been wanting to build some of my own bee houses and these give me some great ideas.

Daisies in the sun [Watercolor]

A collection of daisies shines in the summer sun. The brightness of these flowers is the perfect antidote to our grey and rainy morning here in Los Angeles. Of course, I never curse the rain as we need every drop we get and these cool days are a great respite from the high heat we experience in the summer.

Purple Explosion

These flowers always appear like they are glowing — almost radioactive. There are hillsides covered with this and you can see them a long distance away.
