Dan's garden in California, revisitedcomments (5) December 3rd, 2012 in blogs
Today's photos are from Dan Koellen in Roseville, California. We last saw Dan's garden in May, when I fell in love with his topiary Loch Ness monster! (Refresh your memory HERE) Now he's back with a few more of his topiaries, and more. Dan says, "While the topiaries really jump out at you in person, photographing them can be difficult since they tend to blend into the background in a photo. Gardening in the summer can be a challenge in Northern California with very hot days and no rain from May until fall; even Mediterranean plants need supplemental water here to keep them healthy." Those topiaries are so cool, Dan! And I'm so jealous of your phlomis. I don't think I can grow it here, but always admire it when I'm in California. Thanks so much for the update--keep 'em coming!
