Delightful Discoveries

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

While out on my morning bike rides, it is the delightful discoveries along the journey that I enjoy most!  For example, this morning, I rode past this house around the corner of my own home.  The landscape in the front yard has burst into color.  Lively Lantanas in various hues are currently a boistrous attraction. 

During California's severe drought years, many homeowners re-landscaped with less lawn and more drought resistant plantings.  I like the way this homeowner used flowers, cactus, succulents and rocks, to accomplish their goal.

I take pictures for the purpose of remembering fond times.  I do not impose copyright restrictions on these photos, so you may feel free to use, or distribute as you wish.  However, should you need a Real Estate Professional in the Greater Sacramento area, I hope you will contact me by email or by visiting my website - Thank You!

Hi Myrl - that looks like the Phoenix desert way of planting! Gorgeous.  Our yard is awash with color, birds, butterflies etc.  So pretty!  Enjoy your day!

Anna Banana Kruchten Arizona's Top Banana!  - the recent drought lasted 7 years.  We had double rainfall last year, but have reverted back into drought conditions this year.  More and more, folks are planting like we are in a desert! 

Roy Kelley - I hope you enjoy your holiday weekend too! 

Sharon Lee - really do enjoy these bike rides.  They put me in a totally different frame of mind.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I totally agree.  More and more folks are working with the environment, rather that doing battle with it! 

George Souto - I'm glad you liked them!

Good morning, Myrl... that's certainly a show-stopper of a garden. Your pictures made me feel as if I was right there biking along with you.

We are used to that kind of landscaping here and it is surprising how much color can be found in plants that don't require a lot of water.

I enjoyed looking at these landscapes you discovered along the way.  I always enjoy seeing other people's flowers and care they put into their gardens. A

Thanks for sharing your photos, Myrl. They are beautiful. I haven't put out any plants on my deck, patio, or porch as it has been too cold. Today it was a warm and sunny day... no rain! So I hope to get my pots purring with colorful flowers.
