Before, During and After pics

For the past year I’ve been working on a really wonderful project. It’s a beautiful spot right on a cliff above the ocean. The weather is pretty extreme, so plant selection has been tricky, to say the least! I’m doing a fairly good job at taking lots of pictures, which is not always my strong point. Here’s just a little taste…

New Succulent Project



These are some potted succulents that have been ignored and neglected for a couple of years now. Some are still in their plastic nursery pots… Bad gardener! Anyway, I’m going to make amends for this sad situation in the next week or two, and of course I’ll post the results. I have a larger pot or two that I think they would be much more comfortable in. Looking at the plants that I have here, I see that I’ll have to actually go and buy a couple more from the nursery to do my project. I want a variety of colors and it seems I have a fondness for pale grey/green with hints of pink. I think some darker green and/or some burgundy tones might go nicely… or… maybe I’ll just stick I’ll with a grey-ish color scheme. Stay tuned!

New Job…..before pics

   Just started a job today- not a design job, but should be a fun quickie. The clients want the areas around the house “fluffed up”,  so their property looks good for an upcoming event. It was a beautiful, sunny day and felt quite peaceful and idyllic up there. My crew- Perry (the drill sergeant), Dave & Juan did a great job, even when a yellow jacket nest was uncovered. Juan got stung 3 times, so they took turns working near the nest. So brave! 😉 Here’s some before shots… I’ll post after pics in a few days.
