Neighborhood garden

This house used to have a lawn, much like every other house in my parents’ neighborhood. Then a young couple bought it and completely landscaped the front and side yards. I miss very few things about LA; gardening is one of them. Not that I’d ever be able to maintain a garden like this, though.


Now that the area outside my kitchen has been pigeon-proofed, I can plant in my window boxes again. Verbena from the Heart of the City Farmers Market. I chose this plant because it’s drought-resistant (meaning, it will survive two weeks of neglect).
