ClancyBoy, re post 51, somehow I had missed viewing the winter photos on this thread, and I am in awe of your rose reflection in the Airstream. That is a beautiful shot, calendar material. Congratulations on having a good eye and ready camera--not to mention a terrific Airstream and a lovely rose ~G

George W. Marston geranium

This geranium is in my front yard. It was developed in San Diego by Point Loma geranium breeder Jim Zemcik and dedicated in 2006 to George W. Marston, a prominent citizen and merchant prince of early San Diego. He and other philantropists were responsibile for attaining land that become Anza Borrego State Park, the first Calif. state park, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary.

The plant can be purchased from The Friends of Marston House, in San Diego.

Flowers in the backyard

More flowers from my backyard. Unfortunately the cascade of small white dendobrium blooms are finished.

I have been inspired by "Antiquepedaler" to bring a pot of geraniums on trips to decorate the picnic table.

Happy trails to all,
Larry

A place to be when not camping

A garden water feature is a must to attract positive energy (Qui) for good Feng Shui. Fish are a symbol of abundance, prosperity, perseverance, and long life as evidenced by the myth of the Koi swimming up a waterfall. Once it reaches the top it changes into a Lucky Dragon. That is why Koi and oriental dragons have the whiskers (barbells) around their mouths.

Beautiful! You know, I'd love to see an aerial shot of the garden you guys have created. It looks like such a great space.

I figured I'd revive my thread with some new shots

Virtually all of my garden has been dug up and put into pots in preparation for the demolition and rebuilding of my home. Despite this, everything is growing remarkably well. My peonies are doing better than ever and they are known to get fussy about being disturbed.




Honeysuckle

Astrantia Major

Hostas and Rogersia



Hostas and Iris

Ginger, ferns, Columbine and Iris

It won't be much longer and my collection of Lilies will start blooming!

I love the textures, and the variation and contrast in leaf color. Good luck with the demolition.

Thanks Larry. What I love about the hostas and other shade plants is the architecture of the plants. Especially when they are layered with one another. One nice thing about having them in pots right now, is that it lets me move them around and play with the visuals a bit.

That is Honeysuckle. I believe it is considered an invasive species in your part of the world. In other words, it grows too well.

'08 spring and summer blooms

The jacaranda tree with the lavender flowers, the tree of San Diego, blooms only for a few weeks. The Queen of the Night, night blooming cereus did its first mass bloom on Summer solstice.

Beautiful! Is Queen of the Night a succulent?
