Spring is blooming at our house!!

Thought you might enjoy a few pictures of our yard and house. We are enjoying some beautiful spring weather here along the central coast in California including God's gentle sprinkle of rain. As you can see our home is nestled into a 1 acre sloping hillside. Ron and I designed our home about 22 years ago and had it built on this ever "work in progress" hillside parcel of land.

Here is one of the brick work flower beds my hubby completed a couple of years ago and planted...seems to be filling in better each year.

The rock roses and lavender blooms are beautiful along the right edge with the petite geranium blooms slowly coming along. I can see some areas that will need some extra care and additional flowers, but overall I am loving it!!

Here is our climbing pink rose bushes in bloom along the fence bordering our neighbors property and along the left side of our driveway. Aren't they just gorgeous??? The pictures don't do them justice.
God is so good and I feel truly blessed to even have a home at all. Will post more later as the ever evolving yard takes on more character.


  1. Love your terraced gardens. My hubby did this for our yard/gardens last year ... such a wonderful touch to the gorgeous florals that bloom.

    Isn't it wonderful to be just appreciative for the things that you have ...
