And so the garden begins. I took a quick run to Miner’s Ace Hardware, which is a celebrating kind of spot on the weekends, and took a walk through the spectacular nursery. I came away with my first coastal garden plant.
Branches, blossoms, new leaves come quickly to the few transferred pots I brought from the valley. The new coastal plants, to me, appear brilliant in color, spiny in design. I love the new decor.
I found a great sale on ocean grasses. They are now potted, placed on the deck, and adding their sway to the afternoon breezes. Everything looks so fresh. Even after working for several hours in the coolness, I’m energized.
