Ahhh, you folks in CA like to rub it in don't ya? :)
What I wouldn't give to live in a huge glass house. I guess I'll have to settle for what I have.
Great plants, especially the two large ones up front!

My DH glanced at the screen over my shoulder and thought the title of the photo was "My garden success!" And it should be--we both think your garden is beautiful.

paracelsus,

I think you're being far to hard on yourself. I don't think your "garden succs". It's one of the nicest I've seen posted, you did a great job chosing plants with different textures and harmonious colors. :0)

Thanks for the nice comments everyone!

I don't think my garden sucks either. I had considered posting under the title "My garden rocks!"

It has a crazy mix of plants, some of which are not going to like the several inches of rain we had last night and today. More rain is on the way. But the plants in the ground have survived three winters outside and a little more rain shouldn't hurt too much. It's the plants in the pots that I worry about. Fortunately, I think the time of frosty nights is over now and nightly patrols have kept the snails in check.
