  • Hi. I wanted to invite you to share your page at my “Time for Winter... Share Day” @My Small Garden Paradise. I have a share day to welcome each season and even though it seems as though Winter is late in arriving to New Jersey this year, I wanted to welcome the official start of Winter today! I hope you will stop by. Please feel free to share this post if you would like so that we can get many participating. I will have this invite pinned to the top of my page indefinitely. I’m looking forward to seeing you. Let the winter begin! Nancy :) See More
  • Thursday, October 1, 2015 Program LACSS meeting begins at 7:00 PM .... The Sepulveda Garden Center will open for set-up at 6:15 pm Speakers- Marquita Ellias and Joyce Schumann Presentation- Botanical Names Decoded Are you one of those people that get confounded or even embarrassed about using the botanical name of a plant? Do those botanical names have any meaning? Do you say to yourself “it’s all Greek or Latin to me” and have no idea how to remember them or even pronounce them? Please join us for a delightful evening of decoding botanical names and learning why we have them and what in the heck do they mean. You’ll find that it’s a fascinating journey. I think you’ll cry out that it’s really “elementary” my dear Watson. Joyce and Marquita are the President and Vice-President of LACSS, respectively. We’ve wanted to give this program for over a year now and with each other’s encouragement we finally have a finished product. We hope that you enjoy the presentation as much as we enjoyed putting it together. October Plants of the Month Cacti: Miniature Succulents: Miniature See More

My talented friend Fleur Nooyen designed this amazing native garden in Santa Monica...It was a highlight for all who went on the Theodore Payne Native Garden Tour last weekend! This is also me doing the camera work and editing...which is why it is better if I stay on the other side of the camera!

this Aeonium Schwarzkopf (Purple-Headed Aeonium) shows different qualities according to climate change. These two photographs are taken 9 months apart. The first at the end of a drought season (march 2016)...the second the beginning of a cool wet winter (Jan 2017) Equally beautiful in their own right.
