Most of the trees in our garden are deciduous giving the yard a deserted barren feel.
And some things continue to grow and look greener now than they did in the heat of summer.
There's those barren looking crepe Myrtle trees and the Chinese pastiche. Leaves every where.
A little corner of one of the side yards that stays green and pretty all year long.
Talking about leaves. These are from the Japanese purple plum tree.
The canna lilies die back and the new healthy starters grow into tall plants in the spring and summer.
The bare Japanese purple plum.
The Meyer lemon tree is laden with fruit which is almost ready for picking. I am looking forward to canning Meyer Lemon Curd and Meyer Lemon Marmalade.
The African daisies seem to thrive all year round.
The miniature rose bush on the right is one Theresa gave to us when we first moved into the house. It was in a 4-inch pot. It blooms constantly all year round as well. In the spring it is full of vibrant orange and yellow roses.
