Pictures of the work gardens.

A brief summer picture for comparison.

Boy, you can sure feel the cold in the first photos and then you warm up looking at the last. I can just feel the sun.

Those icicles are insane! I really like that summer photo with the rocks.

The winter pictures are beautiful. I find that I really like snowy pictures, I just prefer to look at them from a beach near the equator.

Gorgeous summer photo as well!

The work gardens, means the fire resistant gardens where I work. We put in the fire resistant garden in 2004 for residents within our area to come see how to design and plant with wildfire fire safety in mind.

Love that picture with the icicles.

I would love to hear more about fire resistant gardens. I see rocks, get it. And succulents I would understand. But grasses? That wouldn't have come to my mind if I were thinking about fire resistance. Any simple pointers you could give us?
