Backyard Escapes 12.16.13

The Backyard is Filling in Beautifully & A Few New Glass Crafts.

Just thought I'd share how the backyard is filling in. I love waking up in the morning and going out about 6am with my coffee and seeing what has bloomed today. It's so refreshing & peaceful. I'm not your typical gardener, I really don't know what I'm doing. If I see something I like I plant it. If it starts looking a little sad I move it to another location. I don't trim when I'm suppose too, so I'm told. But everything seems to grow anyways. I just water & appreciate the beauty.

    thats the way I garden too. I really don't know what I'm doing but it all turns out beautiful. I do a lot of pots since I'm gardening with two chocolate labs and a dalmatian. Also use some pet fencing I was given to fence them out of certain areas.

    Your description certainly sounds like 4 o'clocks. My grandmother lived outside Salinas when she was growing them. They too reseeded themselves. We children always found the opening and closing very interesting.

    I googled the 4 o'clocks and that's what they are. Thank you everyone for your help. I didn't realize they came in so many colors & mixed with two different colors. Now I want to see about getting some in different colors to block my storage area since

    I <3 the rain boots and the bird! Y'all give me inspiration to get out and make a spot to sit in my yard. I have no deck, porch, or patio... sigh...

    I do love the look of 4:00s but had to start deleting them from my yard a few years ago. They grow TOO well here in Morgan Hill, CA. I had several colors but they were becoming invasive in so many areas of my garden front and back. It took me 4 or 5
