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.
