Frog Town

If I had a choice, I would sleep in a rose, too.
At night the canyon echos with the sound of frogs.
It could be a million frogs.  You would have to hear it to believe it.
                                                                     The  Orchid Cactus (Epiphyllum) is blooming.
The Clematis loves Bluebird Canyon.

My favorite Iris loves to reproduce throughout the garden.  I just move one bulb every year and
a dozen more plants pop up.

Bluebird Canyon Garden (For Now)

I threw some Nasturtium seeds in the dirt last year and they took over a portion of the yard.
If fairies were going to live in the garden I guess this spot would be ideal.
The white wisteria has chosen the neighbors tree in the very upper corner of the property.   The blossoms are so long and smell amazing! 
The roses are a deep magenta.
We are cutting back on residential watering.  25% mandatory water reduction.  Meanwhile development continues adding thousands of new homes  and the farmers use 80% of California's water supply to grow alfalfa and almond trees.  Nestle' is buying California's water to sell and  hydraulic fracking continues across the state.  The corruption and stupidity is beyond comprehension.   We need sanity to return to our government.
