It feels like a wonderful early Spring in San Diego County. My friends and I are all busy in our different style gardens.I have been busy visiting friends gardens and running around as usual.I saw Dee's garden last week and took some pictures which I will share at a later post.
It's fun to get a free plant to take home after walking thru a friends pretty garden.I have been super busy as usual between weeding,transplanting I am a little bit tired.
Morris has been busy stalking baby bunnies and I am sad to say he has killed two but I did save one bunny from his jaws.I literally opened up that crazy cats mouth.
I have decided to get chickens again and have been getting all the stuff you need ready for baby chicks.
I already have one name picked out Violet.That should happen in a couple weeks.I am only getting three or four chicks this time.
Today I decided to move some Iris because I had the Irises in direct sun.I know it's the worst time but it needed to be done.I doubt if they will bloom now. Hopefully that will help with my watering bills in the summer. So now I will transplant tomorrow a plant that can take the heat of summer and I don't have to water it as much.This one might work.
During the week Linda and I got together and went driving around nurseries.
At Mission Hills there were several pretty chickens walking around the nursery. I bought some plants for my goldfish at Walter Anderson and I bought some plants for my garden that will attract more butterflies.I found a beautiful Day Lily.
Linda is a wealth of knowledge about native plants. I would eagerly ask her the name of the plant as we walked around her wonderful drought tolerant garden, then promptly forgot the Latin name!
I am just so busy taking pictures and enjoying all the different plants I guess my brain is occupied! Believe it or not I took a plant identification class in college and had to memorize plant names and did pretty well what happened?
I saw this beautiful tree at Linda's home I just have to grow it in my garden.I am on a quest to find it.
We bought the same rose.
Mine did not have that result!

It is not always about color
This is what a good watering of rain can do
