Calif_Sue's blog: Garden progress

Posted on Jun 3, 2015 11:22 PM

So much in bloom now, enjoying walking though the garden every day. The quail are still visiting daily and the babies are growing fast, they all can fly now, although, per usual, it's just short distances. Parents like to watch from a higher vantage point, the female was on the neighbors roof here

Got the frame of the coop painted, windows are getting an eggplant plum color, it all goes so nice with the garden colors. My bronze Eastern Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius Coppertina™) looks good against that green. Hurray!

I break off individual rosette pieces of Blue Echeveria (Echeveria secunda) and scatter them along bed edges and then grow into large clumps. You can see a few starting to send up blooms
