A dispatch from zone 16

My garden guru just sent me some spring pictures from her sunny garden in Menlo Park (30 miles south of San Francisco).

Check it out, folks!

No wonder she's your garden guru--what a gorgeous place! I especially love the hot-colored rose with the smoke bush in the background.

I know! She's incredible. Fearless is the word. What I'm loving most here is the abundant use of grasses, and my favorite combination is Wiegela florida with...fern! Very groovy.

I think you learned very well from your guru!

I love that last photo. It has everything I want in a garden. Not the plants, but the forms, colors, textures.

I think I would like to get me one garden guru for my new garden.
