Over the past few months, avid gardener Guida Quon from Santa Ana, California, has sent me several photos of her garden, and I’m more and more intriqued with every email that arrives in my inbox. Let’s start off the first few days of this week with some scenes from her fascinatingly eclectic garden.

    OH I WANT WANT TOO. THIS IS REALLY A GREAT SPRINKLER. I LOVE THE LOOK TOO.

    WHY DO "THEY" ALWAYS TRY AND FIX SOMETHING AND MAKE IT BETTER? I REALLY LIKE THIS.

    Sure looks like an uber-cute snail sculpture to me! Wish they still made them!
