Paula working on new flowerbed she put in for me while visiting.
 While my Sister Paula was visiting last month, she finished a flowerbed I had started but have not been able to finish due to foot and knee problems.  She did a great job.  She's a master gardener at her home in Davis CA.
 This area is almost total shade.  Hostas and ferns are perfect for this bed.

Grands painted bricks for me when they visited a few years ago.

August 2016

Despite neglect due to foot surgery and lack of rain, I do have a few things looking good in the garden.  We finally got some rain and everything is enjoying it.  Not quite over the surgery yet and I have to have the same on my other foot.  Can't wait until next spring so I can get back into the dirt again.
Mexican petunias are blooming nicely

Mexican heather are a few years old.

ferns going wild.  will need some thinning out

this planter just keeps getting prettier.

May 2016 Bloomers

Because of some health issues, working out in the yard and my plans for new flower beds have been put on hold for the past two summers. However I have been able to plant a few things. Here are a few things that are blooming.

New Blog

I have started a new blog Carol's World of Quilts and other Crafts.  Going to use this blog just for outdoor stuff mostly gardening of course.  I have been spending much of my time on my quilts for quite awhile as I had a project-to make all my grands and kids a throw size quilt.  I have that completed and now just making quilts for a few friends and maybe to sell.  Click over and see what all I have been doing!
