CANTINA GARDEN COLOR

Aahhh yes!


Much better, don't you think?



So nice to have a bit of color back in the Cantina Garden! The Coral Honeysuckle and Lavender are in full bloom...



while the Crossvine and my little Red Buckeye tree are just about done.




Now if only the rest of my color-mad beauties would kick into gear. Between the plentiful rain we recieved this fall and winter, and the fact that many of my perennials are finally reaching that magical three-year mark (1st year they sleep, 2nd year they creep, 3rd year they leap), I have high hopes for this year!

What a lovely garden! I especially like the terracing and fence around it. You have quite the green thumb!

Looks great. So colorful. Bet that honeysuckle smells divine. Is you fence in the concrete to keep out coyote? xox

Donna, we live on the side of a hill that's solid limestone, with little or no topsoil. Terraced beds were just about our only option if we wanted to grow anything other than native grasses.

Corrine, we built the fence primarily to keep the deer out, but 6 feet just wasn't tall enough to deter them if there's something in there they really want. Plus the fawns can squeeze in between the poles. So, turns out it's more of a vanity fence.
