More Santa Barbara pics

There are a few photos from my visit to a garden center in Carpenteria, a seaside town a few miles to the south of SB.They had an enormous selection of succulents , which would have made me happy as can be on it's own, but when I walked around the back of the building and saw the display gardens..wow. It was just past high noon so photo taking was a challenge. From Events From Events From Events From Events From Events From Events From Events From Events From Events From Events

Those must be some display gardens. They look so colorful. It just seems so "California" Thanks Kathy.

Aww...and pigs really do fly!

I'll second the notion that I feel warmer.

Thanks for taking us along for the trip.

I love that pig! The first picture was particularly good - very 'juicy' :-)

Wowser -- more incredible photos..... and after High Noon - you did amazingly well, Kathy. I can never get the glare out that washes everything out in mine -- extremely wonderful and imaginative plantings.

Wow, how fabulous Kathy. Were those a few Tithonia in that first pic? What a wonderful garden. A treat to see so much color this time of the year

Deanne, those are actually all Black-eyed Susan vines covering a fence and some neighboring Genista. One does forget about the lack of a real winter down there; things might stop blooming for a couple of months but since there is no frost ( and probably never gets much below about 50 where this particular garden was)the plant only needs to push out a little growth and it's ready to go again.

I want to back to that place in the worst way, but I have an event here in June and I need to start cleaning the house..

Yeah I have been there twice. It is only about a 2 hour scenic trip for me. I think it is called Seaview Gardens. I was not expecting the display gardens at all. They were nicer than some botanic gardens I have been to.
