Well hello there! How are you? Long time no blog...I guess that two quick trips and a teaching weekend within the last 9 days can do that to a blog. Happy to be home for a bit and getting the remaining things from all of those ongoings unpacked and put away.
It's a lovely overcast day here in Southern California, we even had a few sprinkles.
I found it the perfect time to reconnect with the garden via a camera walk.
Today I was mostly in search of pretty flowers and flower shapes.
Love that so many succulent plants look like flowers.
And now the same plant, different focus:
Slows my busy brain down to a calmer pace...
Sometimes, I think the flowers are so pretty, I take the same, or nearly the same, photo over and over, as if I'll be able to soak them up more. (like this photo, which is super similar to the one at top of post)
The David Austin roses will always always be a favorite. How could they not be with all those petals?!? Not to mention the colors and scents.
Of course, the Icebergs are pretty too, they bloom with such abundance.
New growth is always so exciting, isn't it?
Gotta love the garden, patiently putting on a show and waiting to be noticed.
Has Spring sprung in your neck of the woods yet? It is always worth the wait in the end...
