Grounded in the Garden

Peace in my heart after three hours of sweating in the garden. Perfect remedy for the stressful work week. Our neighbor, Rain, is a very knowledgeable landscaper and he is moving his family from the Seabright rental across the street, to their new home in Scotts Valley. Yesterday, my honey, Tony was able to obtain some real treasures. We now have a whole new collection of plants, including our very first, thornless rose, Banksia Lutea. Tony and I worked together to integrate all of our new plants. Next time I see Rain, I will find out the name of the really cool looking succulents, dark chocolate rosette plants. We now have what we have been lusting after, when seen around the town. The new red arbor makes a great side entrance to the full garden. Several benches were cleared of plants and clutter to make way for sitting to enjoy, both, the old and the new plants. We have sunny and shady places to relax. The shade was heavenly after working away-time sure does fly, when you are having fun!yellow banksia rose

These are in clusters, small flowers of pale yellow. They don’t appear to fade with age, as many of the older yellow roses do, and have a slight fruity fragrance. Although each flower may not have a strong perfume, when you multiply that by several thousand, then the scent is enough to perfume an entire area of your garden. Also, known as Lady Banks rose, these two plants are fast growers and I can hardly wait to see them arch over the arbor and our front door.
