California Dreaming


From our stash of cool locations that we’ve yet to feature in Country Gardens, one in particular caught my eye. It’s just north of San Diego in California, and features a cool shed and potting bench. When Juli Gillett bought the property with her husband Lance, they proceeded to replace the manicured lawn with garden beds, pathways, and seating areas. Today the garden features a host of perennials that have been selected by trial and error. Charming accents—like the tepee shown here—are sprinkled throughout. Here’s a sneak peek.

  1. James – we would like to share our garden with you. A couple of years ago, after our roof was redone, our once lovely garden was “trashed”… within the past year, we’ve had time to bring it back to life. Summer in LA, this year, is splendid – and our garden is paying us back for all our care. Enjoy. http://thought2form.blogspot.com/2011/06/silverlake-garden_28.html
