These photos are from Raul Zumba and Bob Clarks spectacular garden, My photos are really poor, but I hope they at least provide a taste.

There were many wonderful gates in this 1 acre garden

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...)

Yes indeed Marie, a pomegranate.

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...
