Chip's garden in Californiacomments (10) November 21st, 2012 in blogs
Today's photos are from Chip Milligan. He says, "I live in San Diego, California, on a 1/4-acre with my husband and two dogs. I grow a wide variety of drought-tolerant plants and am more interested in combining different textures of plants than displaying a lot of flowers, although I love flowers :). We have lived here for 7 years, and watching the garden evolve has been such a pleasure. I recently became a Master Gardener for San Diego County." Congrats on your new Master Gardener status, Chip! Your garden is beautiful, and I am intrigued by that burgundy prickly pear cactus. And is that spiky plant beneath the tree a furcraea? It's lovely!

As I've been saying for the last week or so, GPOD submissions get a bit sparse in winter. We don't want me having a panic attack every afternoon as I frantically search for something to post, do we? Help a girl out... In the meantime, have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving, you Americans, and for everyone else, have a wonderful...3rd week of November!
