Un Po Di Giardinaggio... A Little Gardening...

After our hot, hot summer,  i'm happy to be out doing a little bit of gardening . My friend Marilyn from Seattle visited a couple weeks ago and was surprised that we are able to grow so many things here in San Diego during this time of the year.  I guess we're spoiled here.  I am very happy to be growing herbs and just planted a new vegetable garden after having removed all the pumpkin plants. Looking forwards to those tiny vegetable plants growing in.  In the meanwhile...

 Some  Red and White  for Christmas color...

 and... Purple and White,  because those are my favorite colors against all the various shades of green in the garden.  I love the way White "pops" in the dark...

Patiently waiting for the Ornamental Cabbages to grow...


  1. I wanted to answer your question on the comment you left today. No, Jess doesn't play soccer any more. She played when she was young, and she was a Forward. She scored 4 goals in one game one time. It was so exciting to watch her....she was fast. That is great that your daughter got a volleyball scholarship in college! My son played football in highschool too. I bet you will miss watching all the games like I do. The pictures on here are gorgeous. I love the statue and all the red for Christmas. Your yard is beautiful. I didn't know you lived in San Diego. We lived close to San Diego area, and just moved back to northern California because of my husband's work. I grew up in northern Cal. I love San Diego and have been there many times. Have a lovely day.
