My garden is in Southern California, in the San Gabriel valley, Sunset Zone 21. The summers get over 100 degrees and the winters seldom gets to freezing, but over the years the climate has changed to very little rain. I'm obsessed with collecting So. African bulbs-belladonnas, Oxalis, Haemanthus, Watsonia, Chasmanthe, Crocosmia, and more; epiphyllums, succulents and salvaged art. My once organized garden, has become crowded with plants, pots and metal art. I'm happiest in the garden, watering, repotting and of course photographing all that is in bloom. My gardening skills started with my mother's influence and over time blossomed into my own style.
