A Walk in the Garden

Close Up of Buckeye Flower

The weather this spring is so incredible this year.  There are breezes in off the ocean, the skies are blue, we have cool weather.  And we have had rain.  The result is that flowers are in bloom everywhere, and a few miles down the road, we are blessed with 33 acres of an ever-changing and evolving botanical garden, the Conejo Valley Botanic Garden.  I believe all the plants are native to California, and most are drought tolerant – perfect for the xeriscape garden – and incredibly beautiful.
