The Green Door

Behind the green door is the mermaid's garden!
Protea flowers love my backyard.  They are kind of fuzzy and alien looking. 
Really cute, short and fat Delphinium! 
The first Iris in the garden this spring.  I started with a small pot and now
there are bulbs all over the garden.

Spring Flowers

Took a sunset walk at the beach yesterday.  The ocean was very calm.
I am painting lilacs today.
The first rose from my garden.   Bluebird Canyon has its own climate and seems to lag a little behind
the rest of Laguna when it comes to flowers blooming.
The Mallow flower is feeling festive!
The Clematis vine has some really fun flowers.

Shell Bottles & The Peacock Jar

A fun combination of blue willow, murano peacock jar, Chinese enamel container and a mosaic vase. 
Vintage murano peacock jar looking sweet.
Where  can you find Redwood trees, Cypress trees and a Wisteria tree?  Over at the Mermaid House!
The foxgloves are really happy.  My garden is waking up!
When you go out the door of my studio this is what you see.
Shell bottle collection on display.

Wisteria & The Mermaid House

I spent my birthday with friends in Portland, Oregon.  After a week of rain I came home to eighty degree weather and a blooming garden.  A lot can happen in a week!
The Wisteria has a sweet scent, even stronger than Jasmine.
Spring came early this year!  
I am living dangerously and have planted one Nasturtium.  I believe it will turn into a monster
and take over the garden.  This could get interesting.
I am dying to have a Moroccan themed garden party.
I am praying for rain but enjoying the sunshine.  Even a large storm and flash flood warnings
last week have not ended the drought.
