Last weekend I attended a gardening seminar and I got to meet .....Pat Welsh!! For those of you that don't know her...she is like the Julia Child of Southern Calif. gardening. She was in such a hurry to leave to a wedding and I grabbed her (literally) to pose with me. And I hate having my photo taken, but with her.....an exception She is a delightful lady from England and has such a way of story tellingI took three classes that day and have way too much information to share, but I will share some of my favorites..... Always incorporate your own style into your garden. Just as you would your home. Your garden isn't that piece of grass in the front or back....it is an extension of your home .
This is just a little photo of a space in my home with my favorite accent...chickens
A great example of texture and color. One of the best pieces of advice: "It is better to place a $1 plant in a $10 hole, than a $10 plant ina $1 hole......invest in your soil!!!!!!!!!!!!!
