Mom's Garden





My mom's garden is out of control these days (with awesomeness). I grew up gardening with my mom and about 10 years ago she started designing for clients. She specializes in drought tolerant and california native plantings and experiments with different plants in her own garden. She lives in a place that's hotter than shit so it's important that she not have to water constantly and that stuff survives.

I just love how lush and colorful her garden is. On an overcast day all the colors really pop. I'll have to go back and photograph some of the details.

Hot diggity damn! I just wandered over here from The Brick House, and I see these photos - this is EXACTLY what I have been envisioning for my front yard!!! My husband can not see in his mind what I do, and I am going to show him your pix.

Where is your mom?? We're in Upland, and I'm wondering if she's even close.

Tour Mom's garden is gorgeous! It just goes to show that you can have a lush, beautiful garden and still be water-wise.
