Summer Blooms

The flowers in our yard have been absolutely glorious this year. Begs the question: When is a rose not a rose? Well, in our garden, it could be a fuchsia or zinnia, marigold or lily, petunia or johnny-jump-up. We love them all.

Our area, here in the western foothills of the Santa Clara Valley on the eastern slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains, the warm (hot) days and cool nights make so many plants very happy. BTW: This area was home to excellent vineyards and fruit orchards before the sprawling Silicon Valley took over. Here's a sampling of our beautiful bloomers.
