Coastal getaway–#4

Terry and I took a walk one day while on our getaway and found some lovely flora in residential gardens as well as around some of the businesses.

And to go along with the drought situation in California, we came across a great drought-resistant garden at a large apartment complex on the eastern edge of town.

Terry and I got some ideas for our front yard that needs to be redone as it currently takes a lot of water to keep the lawn going.

I especially liked this succulent:

  2. Very beautiful! I really love the Jack-in-the-Pulpit. They look just like calla lilies.

  3. I’ve never seen a poinsettia ‘in the wild’. Thanks for sharing

  5. I am fond of succulents. Mine have died from. Too much rain.
