My gardening experiences in Lucerne Valley, California. Veggies and roses and succulents, oh my.
Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.
Welcome to my Gardening Blog.
In October of 2012 I moved from Anaheim CA to the Mojave Desert. So the older posts will reflect my gardening before the move, and my newer ones are after the move. Now that I have a huge yard and sandy soil (the opposite of what I had in Anaheim), I have to learn how to adapt.

Nasturtiums Are Blooming
The weather can't decide if it wants to be hot or cold. I let my nasturtiums go to seed and they are blooming like crazy now. I never know what color they will be so it's a nice surprise every time. I'm not sure if I will plant any veggies this year since we went to move out. But the succulents are doing well. My pansies in the front yard are hanging in there too. The rain keeps damaging the ones in the shade. They aren't as happy as the ones that get more sun.
Originally I planted seeds & each year they come back.
The leaf behind this one is almost more stunning than the flower.
