May Garden

The back yard is looking good.  From left to right, above:  Rhododendron, Mock Orange, Herb Garden, and Rose.

It occurred to me recently that I don't often cook things that need fresh herbs.  I wonder if I should plant some other things in the herb garden... hmmm.  About the Rhodie, Chico isn't a friendly Rhodie environment - too much sun and heat - but this one is happy under the shade of the Arbutus tree and Myrtle tree growing nearby.

The front yard is in bloom.  From left to right above: Mystery border pink flowers, Styrax tree collage.  The Styrax tree is in it's annual bloom.  It's covered with little white flowers.  The violas and daisies beneath the tree don't mind a few flowers dropping on them from the tree above.
