My gardens are a tribute, first to my mother who taught me to collect and plant seeds in 1936 when I was three; then to my husband the agriculturist; then to my sons, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren who are the crop I am most proud of.
I have used the "pages" to write the history of my garden. Be sure to check them out.

Stepping Stones in Garden
As promised, here are pictures of the paths I started creating in early summer, which are now completed in October. Edging is river stone and small bark. The garden looks bare in spots because the California poppies have finished blooming. About all the color now is yellow alstromeria, purple penstemen, lavender, and a few white Shasta daisies (not in pictures). The first two pictures show the red cigarette plant on the left side. Paul dug up some clumps of this to take home to Marin for his two front planters. The yellow and white petunias under the front window are in their second blooming after being cut way back.
