So much fun to see private gardens with new ideas!

Love the bricks and bicycle wheel, rust and bougainvillia, grasses and pig and pots and the blue sky...
Is Marsha's piece a pomegranate? (I don't know my California fruits very well...)

WOW! What a fabulous garden Kathy! Just love the plantings and art. Love the blue tiles in the brick wall. Fantastic. That first shot with the huge cordyline and stone bench is so terrific. What a visual treat. I'll be back to look again. Thanks so much for posting these Kathy!

I see that I need to take another trip to Napa, lol!

I love this garden. I'm amazed at the brick "wall" along the stairs...however did they come up with that idea? Wow. I really like the pomegranate, but I wonder if it might be a Little and Lewis piece that I've seen in their catalog. (Nope, went and looked and I think there's was a private commission)

Thanks for taking us along...

Here is a link that might be useful: Litte and Lewis Pomegranate...or not.

I like the brick and tile wall plus the bench with the hot stuff the best. Great pictures/garden!
