|Remnants of what was a lovely garden|
My most recent purchase is a olive tree. The 50 year old guava tree that was the center piece for my mother in law"s original "mound" in front of the courtyard, finally succumbed to the drought conditions.
In 2014, weed control mat, gravel, and the existing river rock was applied to the "mound" and the inner court yard (lawn) Obviously, it did not do well at all...after the rain, everything bloomed! I have weeds that I have never seen before.

Pulled out the weeds, and found that my sage plants made it through the winter.
