Daydream of the Week: A Secret Garden

GardenBusy, busy, busy… Travel, looking for work, seeing friends in Vegas, spending time in San Francisco. Moving is hard work! So imagine my surprise when, during a 24-hour jaunt to LA, something that sounded like a chaotic whirlwind became quite peaceful. My friend Tiff generously let me stay at her beautiful little house in Redondo Beach, and I fell in love with her garden. It must seem quaint for people sometimes when a desert-dweller exclaims only, “Green!” But that’s what I did. Gorgeous flowers, soft grass, bamboo — and a jolly Buddha.

What more could you ask for in a home garden?

  1. What a peaceful little oasis. Now wonder you were so happy to linger there awhile. 🙂

  2. Oooh I love it!

  3. Looks nice. I’ve got to get some bamboo — I just love it! I just have some planters on my deck and I hate to say it, but the plants are not in great shape. I’m a terrible gardener. I need your friend’s help.

  4. Abby, like the way don’t keep a secret – thanks for sharing this one 🙂
