A quick post, I've been outside working in the glorious weather non-stop. The one & only Banksia I didn't manage to kill off, has a beautiful cone! Below, some of the current blooms I stopped & clicked a picture of:
I was losing sleep over the drab color of the california gold 3/8. Ugh, I couldn't stand how it looked. So I've topped it with a couple yards of ginger fines, I don't think pictures truly show the difference. But I'm happier with the warmer look of it. Topping the paths off with fresh gold fines and raking everything as well. I may need one more yard of the gold fines, although my back is protesting the thought. TriValley Landscape (Pleasanton) has much prettier gold fines than Cochran Landscade (Livermore) BUT they also have huge clumps in their fines that I have to stomp out. I'll post pictures when I'm done with that project.
I'm trying my hand at a crevice garden, I admit that I lack the patience to really do these justice. However, I am really liking how it looks. This was about halfway through.And during the top dressing with ginger fines. Still a work in progress.
Need to finish up top dressing.
My favorite dish from Easter, Ina Garten's tomato & herbed ricotta salad. YUM!
Helping me relax by napping on my tired legs, thank you Dr. Feelgood.
