Now that I ‘m home from my spring travels, I’m eager to import elements of what I’ve seen into my garden. In February I had the wonderful experience of visiting the Alhambra in Granada and the Alcazar in Seville, both reminiscent of Persian gardens bright with roses reflected in pools of water.
In April I visited some friends up north–my first road trip on my own–and gained inspiration along with a bird feeder and a carload of succulents. Seeing the delicate wildflowers and vernal pools of the Jepson Prairie Preserve made me happier than ever that I am incorporating native California plants into my garden.
For now I have a couple of months at home to work on the development of my own garden. Happy planting!
