The Wulfeni that grows in the west side of the front garden, across the stepping stones from the West Coast Planter. A very nice evergreen plant.
The plume type scilla that is in the same area as the wulfeni.
The kinnikinnick - a indigenous plant with some interesting medicinal properties. I am letting this plant grow along the cedars and the California Lilac as ground cover.
A new little rock plant that is spreading nicely. It grows next to the hens and chickens that are next to the stone path. When in bloom this plant has little button like gold flowers. I must find the name of it.
Another view of the little rockery by the west coast planter.
The globalaria in the little rockery
The Grace Ward Lithodara in the little rockery. This lovely plant has been spreading quite a lot. I need to take cuttings of it to transplant to the areas by the magnolia tree that I am renovating.
The mountain avens in the little rockery. Another good plant that I should transplant cuttings to the new renovation also.
The fern leafed peony. This plant does not stay in bloom for very long, but it is spectacular when in bloom.
Close up of the fern leafed peony.

I have several time consuming hobbies that I enjoy. Gardening was my first passion. When I got my computer my garden suffered some neglect but for all that the garden still looks pretty good.
To those two I have more recently added photography. Photography relates to all of my hobbies, as well as to travel, and seems to tie them all together.
I have a high maintenance, wonderfull husband, who remains the primary interest.
