Spring in the California Foothills
The flowers in the garden are starting to bloom now that the frost is gone. This is a low maintenance, no grass, yard that runs on a timed drip system. One of the flowers blooming in the spring is the Firedance (Loropetalum). The Snow Sprite (Cedrus) is the centerpiece of the front. On the side yard is black mulch. The mulch has a cloth base under 4 inches of mulch. And to top it off....a wonderful view of the foothills.
