Some of my favorite things ... pottery, poppies, alyssum. I know the focus is off. I'm out of practice. Coming back after years away.
I care about trees, flowers, soil, water, biodiversity, the environment. I'm creating a garden in Zone 10a in Los Angeles that will bring butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, worms, birds back to the earth. Now, I like English country gardens, 'real' flowers, as I call them, and lots of green foliage everywhere. I don't like cactuses and can tolerant succulents. The issues are having enough light, too much dappled shade, drought, water rationing and HEAT. I believe I can make this work. I'm certainly going to try.
