Here the Inner Garden is shown with ostrich ferns and begonias with shining green leaves and bright waxy pink flowers.For the moment our garden appears to be coping with limited water while the temperature remains 90 to 100 degrees. It is fortunate that much of the landscape is shaded by a canopy of 70 live and valley oak trees. So for the moment we are in garden survival mode hoping for early fall rain.
Looking back over the 50 years we have worked to create a woodland garden, we hope it will survive the next few months until the rain arrives.”
It does not look like your garden has suffered at all, Irvin, a testament to it’s quality and health. Kudos, and keep the updates coming!
