2013 has arrived and I find myself celebrating the 4th Blogiversary of Bay Area Tendrils
…while saying goodbye to the garden I’ve tended for nearly 15 years.
I embrace the change, despite the accompanying stress and challenges.
I’ll miss some of the beautiful specimens that take starring roles in my Northern California landscape, like the buttery blooms of Crocosmia ‘Solfatare’ that shine against the garden’s Moroccan Blue walls.
Native specimens like the California Dutchman’s Pipevine – a spectacular plant that provides endless pleasures, putting on a surprising show, reblooming when I least expect it.
Another favorite, Trachelium caeruleum – blue throatwort partners again with the blue wall.
I may be moving on, but my sweet garden will not be forgotten!
