More To Come.....
I have always thought your garden a wonderful oasis.
It's great to see those plants again.
BTW I have often wondered when i see the famous Hollywood sign where you are in relation to it?
I remember this one. I liked it then, too.
BTW, don't worry. I'll be visiting to check on you and get my fix of flowers, Hollywood, and reviews! Where else would I go?
I always love the photos of your garden and these are truly outstanding!!!
Beautiful photos, Naomi! I've just put some on mine.
Great pictures - thanks!
I have never seen aloe in bloom! I love when you post photos of plants in your area---especially the macro shots. Thank you!!
I had never seen an aloe flowers. I had not seen many of the other flowers either – it is not likely that I would see them in Georgia. I enjoyed this post.
It's fun to see that I have some of those plants in my garden, too. We had to move our opuntia after a child got too close to it...talk about hours with a tweezer, you are right!
Spring is just awesome in your garden. I love the diversity of plants you have and my what wonderful blossoms.
I have a small converted octagonal fish tank that I planted it in succulents. I did try cactus but they didn't thrive. I'll just enjoy yours.
Hi Naomi: all I can say is Wow, your garden plants are so interesting, and so different. Nothing like the plants that grow in gardens here in the Great White North! Do these cactus and succulents need a lot of care, or do they manage on their own? I assume that they grow quite slowly? The flowers are fascinating, and it seems that the birds love them too.
the aloe flower, with its visitor, is wonderful
and I love the flat flowers with the dots, I already forgot the name
I'm terrible with flower and plant names
beautiful post lady
Hope sends hugs
So pretty Naomi, and such unusual flowers. There are so many species of flowers that one can never get enough! The Opuntia is pretty with all the red dots, and I'll bet that would be painful if you bumped against it! Hugs to you and hope you are doing well.
I'm not kidding. These are so off the chart exotic that they gave me a chill and brought tears to my eyes! I love the way they all look together too.
I love the contrast of the flowers with the city behind. It seems that you get the best of both worlds where you live. Your garden is a delight, and all the colour and variations must be amazing. I love the way you managed to captured both the bird and the bee in your shots. You are an excellent photographer as well as all your other skills and gifts!
It is not my first time seeing the photo's but it is just as enjoyable a second time because you have such an eye for the photo's that you take!... but then only you really know where to look in your very special garden.
oh, naomi, how i love dropping by your place and always being greeted with such beauty! and it IS that time finally - spring - even here! and i've this incredible yearning to be spending saturdays at local nurseries picking out my sun room plants - this will be the first full spring/summer in this house - the sun room crosses the front of the house - direct northern exposure - from my "space" there is a door opening onto this long sunroom - so far i've only a few nice chairs in it but i'm thinking a complete "room" [including a daybed] in the end - a room filled with plants - anyway, dropping by and seeing your wonderful green friends was just the thing! thanks so much!
What a lovely haven this garden is -- I'm so glad you reposted it, as I hadn't discovered your blog back with the original. Simply beautiful photos -- hard to believe it is right in the city!
What an eye you have! Thank you
I love the various flowers in your garden,Naomi,they are so different than what I am used to seeing.
Good gardens are like good books and good moview. Worth seeing again.
Yes dear Naomi, I remember well these photos of your wonderful garden. Really your garden looks a Paradise. Love the macros pictures too and Opuntia is gorgeous. I'm so glad that you reposted these photos. Thanks for sharing.
Wishing you a pleasant Sunday!
Ah, I remember this post as I always love your garden posts. The pic of the flower and the bee is wonderful. Thanks for drawing our attention to this again :)
Amazing like usual. They are beautiful.. I love them all. that one plant is type of catus? I believe its spelled.. Hope all is good with you.
Thanks for the photos, some of these which I've never seen before and it is gorgeous :D
All the photos are lovely but I especially like the ones with the city in the background. It's such a contrast to the flowers!
I am glad you are revisiting some of your earlier posts, those from before I knew you! These are beautiful!
You have a lovely garden Naomi but even more lovely are the photos you take. You really are so talented and make everything look so interesting and beautiful. Wish I lived closer you could take my picture lol
My daughter is in Columbia, can you believe it? She spent some time in New York then went to Cartegena at the same time the President was there. Glad she didnt run into those Secret Service men though - they all sounded a bit dodgy according to the news reports.
I would like to pack up and go for a trip too but it certainly wont be to south America - those days are gone. I am too much of a chicken now and like to be as safe as I can. I think its called old age, lol
