Gossip in the Garden

Harmony in the Garden's Chattier Side


Drought Tolerant Superstars for the Winter Garden – Part II (plus an upcoming inspirational garden event!)

The other day someone asked me if I thought California’s Governor would declare we’re no longer in a drought.  And if so, would I continue to focus on creating low-water gardens.
