    Garden East Side

    This is a picture of our back yard garden, east side of it. The hibiscus, eucalypitus and mint plants are doing nicely.  The citronella plant, left of the hibiscus has tiny violet colored flowers. It is suppose to combat mosquitos.

    California Lilac Blooming

    This beautiful California lilac has really started to bloom this year. It was most likely because of our recent rains. I hope that we are not in a drought still. We have had a rationed schedule of what days and times we can water our lawns in this city.
