Sheila's photo from Gardens of PetersonvilleThe Gardens of Petersonville
in Southern California at Laguna Beach and San Juan Capistrano is a delightful blog to visit. Sheila gardens in two locations. She features some wonderful themes, one of my favorites being the White Garden. She has pets. I'm wild about 12 month gardens and she succeeds. Both her gardens are Certified Wildlife Habitats and are organic.
There are blogs that I read because they are interesting but the climate is so different to mine that I can never relate to the plantings. Sheila's climate is not exactly the same as mine but many of her plants do well here. Reading her blog is kind of a 'California Dreaming' experience for me.
Ideas like her grapevine tunnel would work here. I may never plant one but what fun to think about where I'd put it. Maybe I'll just plant a Maypop tunnel. She has passionvines mixed with her grapevines. The Gulf Frits would love it!
This Party is hosted by Tootsie of Tootsietime and Growing 4 Seasons and Bren of Garden Chat and BG Garden. Join the party at any of those blogs including this one: Growing 4 Seasons. I hope I have the rules correct: You blog about a favorite site and you link to your own blog post about that site.
