I just wanted to share with you photos of our garden.
It is always evolving every season.
Since having a feature in the June Issue of Romantic Homes,
I realized how many different garden areas we have.
This area is the first flower garden we started next to the house.
Stan built the raised beds and we just added another panel of wood to make them larger,
which I will share with you in the up coming month.
Our Jasmine and Hydrangeas have taken
over this side of our house.
It always smells so good.
The miniature garden is always having
new flowers and special things added to it.
Last year we did a Kitchen garden with a pattern.
A view from the house.
Westeria growing on a copper arch on our hill.
Stan designed and made it.
Our roses in full bloom in front of our house.
A new area with a picket fence
will show soon pumpkins and flowers.
The side of our house has a garden shed
which we keep all our tools in.
Next to it is a giant Pom Pom Hydrangea, Weeping Mulberry, Crepe Myrtle, Bougainvillea, Grapes and a Tabebuia tree.
Another view of the trail up to the hill.
Scott, our son, and Stan built the hand rails.
We are really using them now.
A view of the deck up on the hill.
We can see downtown San Diego.
Stan designed our patio cover.
We planted Westeria, Grapes and Roses on it.
We are now getting some shade from them.
We love all our chandeliers outside.
Bringing indoors to our garden makes it feel
like another extension of inside of the house.

Our dog, Maggie, on one of the trails on the hill.
Stepping Stones to our House.
At night it's very magical with all the lights on.
Hope you enjoyed the Garden Tour!
