Our Garden

We LOVE having a garden. So much joy comes from growing flowers, fruits, and vegetables. There's a great sense of satisfaction and excitement knowing you're able to grow something! By no means are we expert gardeners, it's all trial and error. We plant what we think will grow and what we like to eat! Our collection of herbs and vegetables include cilantro, basil, rosemary, thyme, carrots, eggplant, summer squash, Thai chilies, Serrano peppers, and tomatoes (when asked "what kind of tomatoes did we plant?" my husband responds, "I don't know... delicious ones!"). Fruits include raspberries, Fukushu kumquats, and Meyer lemons. Flowers we're enjoying are snap dragons, bachelor buttons, calla lilies, bougainvillea, gardenias, pansies, nasturtiums, petunias, moss flower, and sunflowers! 

Look at the squash - in only 10 days.... it reached the ground!!!

Bring the Outside In!

I trimmed off a little branch from our bougainvillea. It instantly brought a pop of color to our bathroom. No worries if you don't have flowers or vases at home. You can find beautiful blooms from your grocery store or farmers' market (or maybe your nice neighbor's yard?) and display them in bowls (cut off the stems and let the blooms float in a bowl of water), glass jars, or aluminum cans!
