More Garden Stuff

Today I did my annual pilgrimage to the Cabrillo horticulture departments Mother's Day plant sale with my Mom and her neighbor, Cindy. It seems to have become a tradition of my mom and mine. When I went to school there, I had to volunteer at the sale, but now it's nice to go back and load up on great plants the students have been propagating all year. Actually, I've been loading up on plants pretty steadily for the last month now, with the Going Native Garden Tour, the plant sale, my mom and all the vegetables I've been buying. By the time school's out, I should have a decent number of native plants for the front yard. I can't wait. Maybe someday our house will be on the native garden tour! Here's some picture of what I have so far.

I love the close ups of your flowers. Hope my penstemon is as pretty as yours. Good luck with all the planting. I'm about half done. I want to see more photos of Scout!
