Such a special time of year. We delight in spending time in the garden. The roses have taken a new life with the winter rains we have here in California. They have never looked this vibrant before.

Now that the garden is giving us such beautiful roses, we like pick “one at a time” and showcase the beauty of each variety; no need to group them in big bouguets.
I am a big fan of these plants. They can be a beautiful addition to your garden in pots. Easily moved, enjoy lots of water and filtered light but I like to bring them indoors for table decorations and spots in the living room but remember only a short period. They are meant to be outdoors. Very rewarding and very easy to root in dirt or water.
Since childhood I can remember the sounds of walking on gravel or the sounds of cars driving up onto gravel. It is funny that most all of my homes have employed the use of gravel in the garden. Certainly a wonderful way to be responsible to water usage and to create anelegant,European look to the landscape.
There is a magic light when dusk comes to our garden. The light plays tricks and almost looks like a “lighting director” has orchestrated the light. This is our favorite corner of the garden to sit as night falls and we bring lanterns to the table.
